HISTORY OF NAURU UTILITIES CORPORATION

The Nauru Utilities has come a long way since 2011, under the Nauru Utilities Corporation Act, under the stewardship of the current Government of the Republic of Nauru headed by His Excellency the President Baron D Waqa, MP, President of the Republic of Nauru.

Power outages have been reduced by around 50% compared to the previous period. Water Production capacity has increased and water delivery improved. Continuation along this trend will soon place NUC as a top performing island utility in the Pacific.

In January of 2016, Parliament passed the Nauru Utilities Corporation (Amendment) Act 2016 which established a full Board for the NUC to provide the leadership and guidance that NUC needs.
