Full power for show
There should be no power outage at tonight’s Rihanna LOUD concert since the electricity being provided will be more than adequate.
This assurance has come from chief executive officer of Kensington Oval Management Inc., Henry Inniss, who told the WEEKEND NATION that the electricity for the show, which is expected to attract over 25 000 fans, will be supplied by diesel generators housed in two 40-foot containers.
The electricity is being provided by a private firm.
“Our power is not being used at all. It is diesel generators that are being used. There are two of them. So they are not using our power. That is more than adequate. They brought more than they really need. The Barbados Light & Power is always on standby, but we will be using the electricity from diesel generated motors,” he stressed.
Inniss also noted that the problem of rain leaking through the roof and into the stands had been fixed so if it should rain tomorrow patrons sitting in areas which have a roof should not encounter any problems.
