Since this morning, an emergency meeting of the Cyprus Energy Regulatory Authority (CERA) has been held to examine the situation that is expected to arise as a result of the Electricity Authority's guilds' decision not to put the six steam power units of the Dhekelia Power Plant into operation next Wednesday, December 14, resulting in a risk of power cuts if electricity demand increases.

CERA is expected to issue a statement on the decisions made following the meeting.

The relevant unions stated in a letter to the Director General of the EAC that the six steam power units of the Dhekelia HPP are illegally operating, contributing to cost increases, and that the staff will not participate in any such activity.

They also state that construction, operation, and maintenance staff will work in properly structured and completed crews, under necessary supervision and oversight, and that no staff member will perform duties not specified in the Service Plan for the position held.
