Using the following phrases, write an email with a minimum of 70 words as a project leader write an email to the customer Mr Gill Roy explaining the delay to the project.

Payment processing system – Schedule – 10th May (Friday) – Unexpected power outage – 3 days – Overall delay – 7 days – includes recovery of lost work – will not recur


Dear Gill Roy

The project “Payment processing system” was scheduled to be delivered on 10th May (Friday). However, due to an unexpected power outage in our offshore site for the past 3 days, work did not progress as expected. Also, we lost a few of our works as backup systems did not come online. Hence we are expecting an overall delay includes recovery of lost work in the delivery of the project for a maximum of 7 days within which our team will work on the issues. Apologies for the delay and we will ensure that the mistake will not recur in future again.

Thanks and Regards
