"System Disturbance Due To A Faulted Equipment Caused The Power Supply Interruptions" - GRIDCo

The Ghana Grid Company (GRIDCo) has rendered an apology to the nation over what it calls a system disturbance which led to last Saturday blackout.

According to GRIDCo, the power system experienced a system disturbance due to a faulted equipment on the Takoradi Extension–Winneba line.

In a statement signed by the Corporate Communications, it said "Consequently, all generating plants in Aboadze, Tema (except Kpone Thermal Power Plant), Bui and Kpong were forced to shutdown. This caused forced outages within the coastal corridor of the National Grid which led to in some parts of Greater Accra, Western/Central, Middle and Northern parts of the country"

The statement further added that Akosombo and Kpone Thermal Power Plants continued to be in service supplying power.

"Restoration began immediately and supply was restored to all bulk supply points by 23:29hrs"

"GRIDCo assures its valued stakeholders that it will continue to work towards the provision of a reliable power system for Ghana’s socio-economic development"

GRIDCo says it apologises for any inconvenience caused.
