Hingham Light experiences equipment issues
June 9, 2005

Hingham- The Hingham Light Plant experienced two separate issues with electrical equipment on Tuesday, June 7th and Wednesday, June 8th. On June 7th, there were intermittent power fluctuations in the Charles Street, Main Street, Whiting Street areas of town that affected customers out to Derby Street due to a recloser mis-operating. The piece of electrical equipment was removed from service for review and inspection. On June 8th, in the afternoon, a different recloser on the system experienced similar problems causing intermittent power outages to customers on Main Street, Gardner Street and out to Derby Street and necessitated a two minute circuit outage, at 5:05 PM, to safely removethe equipment from service for inspection and repair.

HMLP has inspected all of its circuit reclosers to proactively review the pieces of equipment for signs of the same issues that caused the problems last week.
