TAIPEI (Taiwan News) — The Taichung Power Plant Unit 1 was shut down for
emergency troubleshooting due to abnormal sounds in the generator, but the operation of the unit would resume at 6 a.m. Monday morning and the power supply of the country in the following week should not be affected, said Lin Te-fu (林德福), spokesperson of Taiwan Power Company (Taipower，台電) Sunday.
“Taipower would hold a meeting in the afternoon and announce the latest power supply situation afterwards,” added Lin.
The country was facing a serious power shortage after Typhoon Nesat stroke the island and damaged a transmission tower in Hualien which carried 1.3 million kilowatts (kW) of power.
Taipower signaled a power supply warning on July 30, with the operating power reserve remaining less than 800,000 kW, leading people to fear power rationing.
