    knocking out the power...

    The primate is said to have climbed onto the roof of the Gitaru Power Station and dropped onto the transformer tripping the supply
    A monkey has been blamed for causing a nationwide blackout in Kenya after 'falling onto a transformer at a power station'.

    The country on Africa's east coast was without electricity for more than three hours today after the incident shortly after 11.30am local time.

    Electricity company KenGen released a statement this afternoon claiming that the outage was the result of an ape climbing on a power station roof and tripping a transformer.

    It said: "At 1129 hours this morning, a monkey climbed on the roof of Gitaru Power Station and dropped onto the transformer tripping it.

    "This caused other machines at the power station to trip on overload resulting in a loss of more than 180MW form this plant, which triggered a national power blackout.

    "The system has since been restored and all our power generating units are operating normally.

    "KenGen power installations are secured by electric fencing which keeps away marauding wild animals.

    "We regret this isolated incident and the company is looking at ways of further enhancing security at all our power plants."

    The Gitaru power station is the biggest in terms of installed capacity and can serve a fifth of the country's capacity from its 225MW peak power generation, according to the Kenyan Star .

    The newspaper claims the outage saw the service industry, which relies on the mains supply, grind to a halt.

    Power was restored across the country at around 3pm local time.

    Perhaps if they had an electric "wall" they could have kept the "monkeys" away from "triggering" a national power outage:coffee:

    Do they run their country on a Honda generator? 225 MW is less than half of the average coal fired plant in the US.

    They need to fix their fucking grid. How the fuck can a bank tripping on overload take that long to relay? I'd be willing to bet money they're rocking super old and untested relays that don't get cycled.

    So was it a monkey or an ape? They are not the same.

    What happened to the crazy African monkey? I assume it was electrocuted, but they didn't say.

    I don't think any power grid would be able to shunt 20% of it's power through alternate transformers. That'd be quite the overhead for anyone.

    The only reason this caused other banks to trip on overload was this banks protection was either inadequate, or non-existent. A differential relay would/should have tripped the bank and isolated it from affecting any other electrical equipment.

    I love my Honda 2000 generator.

    I can run everything in my RV with it except the A/C.

    And it runs for 12 hours on a gallon of gas.
