As some may have noticed there was a werid ESB situation shortly after 18:30

Of course this is a totally bull excuse emergency generators are on standby for this case

IE are liable and refunds apply

The nature of the ESB fault last night seemed to be presented as sudden frequency change that could kill the 83 1/3 rotating machines.

Again of course there should be UPS for this and indeed we should have solid state kit for the track circuit power

Heuston is immune from this type of fault...

Seems to be a consistent pattern of serious problems in Connolly, second fault in the last week. Last time the power went out the system didn't recover
