TAIPEI, Taiwan — Taiwan’s power problems continued Tuesday after a generator
broke down at the same plant where a fallen tower had put the country’s energy supply on red alert earlier this month.
The coal-powered generator at the Ho-Ping power plant in Hualien went offline early Tuesday morning, according to the Central News Agency.
The setback came just three days after the plant had resumed operation following Typhoon Nesat-caused damage to its transmission tower late last month, which left it able to generate power but not to distribute it.
State-run utility Taipower said workers would not be able to inspect the broken generator until after the boiler cools, so a time frame for its repair and restart was unknown. [FULL STORY]
