    LUMA unable to provide number of active orderlies to handle Hurricane Fiona emergency

    September 19, 2022 - CE Noticias Financieras


      LUMA Energy, in the voice of its emergency management leader, Abner Gómez, could not specify the number of emergency responders it has active in the midst of the emergency caused by Hurricane Fiona.

      During a press conference held by senior government officials together with LUMA, the media questioned Gomez about the number of emergency workers that are currently managing the power grid, but he evaded the question.

      "To solve the breakdowns that will occur due to the hurricane, the work is not only done by the line switchman. It is a work team that works substations, that works underground," said the official during the press conference at the Government Operations Center.

      "The number will fluctuate according to the shifts and the established needs", he argued.

      During the exchange between the press and Gómez, the latter was also unable to provide the space of time in which LUMA Energy expects to attend the power failures.

      "That depends on the damage evaluation.... If necessary, with the mutual agreements, at any time a sufficient labor force can be activated to attend each one of the breakdowns caused by the hurricane," said Gómez.

      At the same time, the official said that he still cannot share a specific number regarding the restoration of electric power until the company discloses an estimate of damages.

      According to the most recent bulletin from the National Hurricane Center, Fiona became a hurricane this morning with winds of 80 mph.
