Russia BLACKOUT after ‘major’ accident at power plant – emergency response launched

Daily Express says A MAJOR accident at a power plant sparked a blackout in a district of Russia, prompting an emergency response to be launched.

The power supply system of Buryatia, a district in Russia’s far east, reportedly suffered a major incident that left almost the entire city of Ulan-Ude without power.  Other areas of the region also suffered power cuts.

Power engineers are reportedly considering switching the power supply to a backup circuit as an emergency measure. 

The engineers said: “According to preliminary information, due to a power outage on the 220 kW line at the Gusinoozerskaya GRES, electricity was cut off in a significant part of the districts of Ulan-Ud. 

“Power engineers are making a decision to switch the power to a backup circuit.”
