Montenegro, Bosnia, Albania, and the Adriatic Coast of Croatia Experience a Power Outage

A significant power outage occurred on Friday in Montenegro, Bosnia, and much of Croatia’s Adriatic coast, where temperatures were above 104 degrees Fahrenheit (40°C). This information was confirmed by local media and Montenegro power distributor CEDIS.

“Network outages have left nearly the entire area of Montenegro without power,” CEDIS posted on Facebook.

Electricity was reported to be out in Mostar, Banja Luka, and Sarajevo’s capital by a Reuters correspondent. There was a nationwide blackout, according to local media.

According to Croatia’s HEP power utility, “an international disturbance that affected several countries” was the source of the outage that affected some areas of the nation.

“To ascertain the cause, the Croatian transmission system operator is collaborating with neighboring system operators to conduct an analysis.”

HEP declared that in order to guarantee “supply in the shortest possible time,” it has fully accelerated its production capabilities.

According to official TV HRT, most of Croatia’s Adriatic coast was without power. It stated that traffic lights in the seaside city of Split had failed and caused all traffic to stop. It reported that ambulance sirens could be heard all around the city.

Electricity was reported to be out in several locations, including the capital Tirana, by the Albanian TV station Top Channel. According to sources cited in the article, the blackout was brought on by a Montenegrin interconnector going down.
