The electrical service in Tarija, Potosí and Sucre was abruptly interrupted yesterday by a failure in the 115 kV line of Valle Hermoso-Irpa Irpa that caused the proximity of a telephone cable from a company outside the system, according to an official report of the National Company of Electricity (ENDE). In the department of Tarija, the blackout lasted for a period of two hours, between 2:13 pm and 4:16 pm, when the supply was resumed. The general coordinator of the National Cargo Dispatch Committee (CNDC), Fernando Román, confirmed that the failure occurred due to the proximity of a telephone cable.
