(Business in Cameroon) - Cameroon’s power utility Eneo reports it recorded two deaths and 10 injured persons during the first quarter this year, due to the poor condition of the national grid.

According to the company, these figures are down 50% and 64%, respectively, compared to the same period in 2018. And despite a significant increase in the monthly number of incidents due to decay and vegetation, there is an improvement in performances. These include a 31% decrease in incidents due to damaged equipment, a 75% decline in incidents due to overloading of structures, and a 35% decline in incidents due to work planned and carried out mainly in Yaoundé and Douala.

However, Eneo notes a deterioration in the quality of the energy served to consumers in recent months. “Work on the grid has been intensified, but there has been an increase in micro outages (less than an hour), with an average of more than two each day.
