A Northpower technician has suffered serious electrical burns following a transformer explosion at a business in south Auckland. However, a Frucor spokeswoman said the incident had not taken place on its premises and its employees were not involved. Police also attended, but a spokeswoman said the matter was in the hands of FENZ and St John. Head of networks programme delivery Minoru Frederiksens said a Northpower technician had been given medical treatment on site and that WorkSafe had been informed. The fault occurred during planned work on the Orb Ave network and affected some nearby customers for about an hour.
