World: TransnetBW: Network operator warns customers of a bottleneck in the electricity network

Mysterious aircraft dropped bombs near a base for Russia's Wagner Group mercenaries fighting in Central African Republic

  Mysterious aircraft dropped bombs near a base for Russia's Wagner Group mercenaries fighting in Central African Republic Wagner fighters have been blamed by the UN for numerous atrocities and human rights violations in the Central African Republic, among other countries.The attack occurred Monday morning local time at a base in Bossangoa, which is a town located in the middle of the country, nearly 200 miles north of the capital city Bangui, according to multiple reports. It was not immediately known where the aircraft came from, or from which entity it may belong to, nor was it clear how many casualties the group suffered.

The network operator TransnetBW called on its customers on Wednesday via app to save electricity. In the meantime, bottlenecks had apparently been expected, which should be prevented in this way. This reported the world and referred to corresponding reports on the smartphones of customers.

A electricity lamp shows users of the TransnetBW app of the current supply situation. So far, this has shown a green status for "power supply secured". On Wednesday, the traffic light then jumped on yellow and for a short time even to red. Customers were then asked to reduce their electricity consumption.

Several cities in Ukraine after attacks by electricity and water supply cut off

 Several cities in Ukraine after attacks by electricity and water supply cut off After renewed Russian attacks in Ukraine, electricity and water supply collapsed on Monday in several cities. Emergency offices or failures reported authorities and operator companies in the cities of Mykolajiw, Odessa, Krywyi Rih and Sumy. According to the authorities, two people were killed in the southern region of Saporischschja. Meanwhile, Russian President Vladimir Putin attended the crime bridge, which was partly destroyed in October.

Message should be kept in a low cost

electricity shutdowns were not to be feared, the network operator assured Twitter. A “redispatch”, a change in the application planning of power plants, was briefly occupied by the network. However, the power grid was stable.

During lunchtime, the operator apparently expected a lower capacity utilization and therefore briefly bought electricity from Switzerland. "The order to Switzerland had become necessary because some reserve power plants were not available in the TransnetBW control zone," said the network operator.

The warning in the app should have ensured that the costs are relatively low. Because electricity imports from abroad are expensive. So if less is used up during this period, the company has to pay less. In the future, the app should also help to save electricity if there are low capacities, the operator said. (mkö)
