A technical fault at the Valletta Substation on Thursday had caused several power cuts to households in Valletta. Enemalta said electricity is expected to be restored at around noon.
Enemalta said its technicians were called to investigate an 11kV fault affecting parts of Valletta at around midnight. The employees are now installing a new transformer to replace one that was burnt on Thursday.
The corporation said the fault originated from a faulty transformer in one of the substations. Further investigations concluded that the transformer was burnt and needed to be replaced.
Enemalta added that, in a separate incident at around the same time on Thursday, a distribution cable feeding the Cirkewwa Reverse Osmosis substation suffered a fault which was restored earlier on Friday morning.
