The electricity supply in Majorca and Minorca was finally brought back into full operation yesterday morning when engineers completed repair work in one of the two effected areas at the Es Murterar power station in Alcudia. The subsequent fault at the Sant Joan de Deu station in Palma has also been fully repaired, according to the power company GESA. A spokesperson for GESA have his guarantee that the company does not foresee any further problems and that GESA now has enough power to meet demand. Engineers will return to Es Murterar over the weekend, when power demand usually falls, in order to repair the outstanding fault. According to GESA once the last fault is repaired, then Sant Joan de Deu station will also have enough power to meet demand. However, GESA was quick to stress that as the situation stands at present, no more power cuts, similar to those the islands have been forced to endure over the past week, are expected. But, this is not the end of the matter, the island wide blackout ten days ago has brought the power issue to a head. The Balearic government is busy, not only talking to GESA and central government about solutions for the future, it is also drawing up an extensive energy saving plan.
