Restoration of Power to North Attica Suburbs Nearing Completion

February 19, 2021

ATHENS — Restoration of the power distribution network at North Attica's suburbs will be "almost complete" by the end of Friday, the Hellenic Electricity Distribution Network Operator (HEDNO) said on Friday.

The heavy snowstorms that hit the country at the start of the week caused malfunctions in medium-voltage power lines spanning 250 kilometers, with 3,000 registered malfunctions in the low-voltage network. A total of 5,000 meters of power cables were destroyed by the extreme weather, noted HEDNO, while 100,000 household nationwide experienced problems with electricity supply.

Approximately 1,500 trees fell during the Attica snowstorm, causing serious problems in the power network: more than 50 medium-voltage pylons and 40 medium-voltage sub-stations were damaged.

Meanwhile, the Athens suburb of Chalandri on Friday announced its decision to take legal action against HEDNO, as power cuts are observed there for a fifth consecutive day, said Mayor Simos Roussos.
