We have a power cut on the main supply to Roubaix 1 and 3.
The generators have taken over.
Date: 2014-01-04 12:39:29 UTC ERDF has just performed to the manipulation to get back to normal.
We heard yesterday that the problems come from a mini-tornado that went on towns: Leers / Crois / Wattrelos. Sheet roof flew and hit the 225 kV lines causing failure.
We are on the normal pattern, end of the incident.
Date: 2014-01-03 22:05:07 UTC ERDF will not get back to normal before tomorrow morning.
The meeting was arranged for 9am.
GE, which has not started has been repaired: batteries defected (however they were replaced last year during preventive maintenance ...).
The main GE of Roubaix 1 is again available in N+1 in case of another cut-off tonight.
Date: 2014-01-03 22:02:00 UTC We switched back the GE to the relief cable shortly after the cut-off.
There was no impact on the servers.
One of the 5 GE f this site is faulty.
The manufacturer is there to fix the issue.
We contacted ERDF who will recontact us to return to the \"normal\" cable.
