Installation of standby generator for Secretariat Install a 200kVA generator and associated equipment to ensure 24/7 operations when power fails. The power supply in Fiji has become increasingly unreliable and following the events of 19 May 2000 where landowners disrupted the hydroelectric supply, power was rationed to 4 hours per working day. This necessitated the Secretariat hiring and buying small portable generators to provide 24/7 power to critical services such as communications and corporate databases.
