Power supply to the north is expected to continue until September 2, according to the instructions given to Cyprus` Transmission System Operator (TSO).
TSO Deputy Spokesman Christakis Hadjilaou told CNA that it seems that problems encountered in a power generator in the north were persisting.
Coordination for the supply of power from the government-controlled areas to the Turkish Cypriot electricity grid started on August 11 after a problem there. The initial request was for a supply of three to four days.
Repairs are taking longer than anticipated.
Hadjilaou said that the average daily supply requested by the Turkish Cypriot side was around 10 MW, and can reach up to 30 MW, depending on the weather conditions.
He said this was not expected to impact on general supply as it comprises only a fraction of daily consumption, which ranged between 800 MW to 900 MW.
Electricity Authority of Cyprus Deputy Spokesman Demetris Nathanail that the sale of power is made in accordance with a specific formula, calculated on the basis of EAC`s current tariff.
Power is not being traded directly between the two sides. Representatives from the respective Chambers of Commerce mediate the sale.
He said the tariff charged has been approved by energy regulator CERA and includes all additional charges for the transmission and distribution of energy, emission and RES charges and others.
