Power outage at RUB: normal service has resumed

After the power outage on RUB campus, normal service has resumed. The power supply is restored; all systems were rebooted step by step. The blackout lasted roughly 20 hours. Never before had such an event occured in the 50-year history of RUB. An error in the two main power supply lines leading to the campus had caused the trouble. "My personal thanks goes to the many helpers who worked immediately after the power outage with great efforts to handle this extraordinary situation", RUB Rector Elmar Weiler said. "Students and employees as well behaved in an exemplary manner."
