NEW electricity provider, Power Distribution Services (PDS) Limited, the Ghana Grid Company Limited (GRIDCo) and the Northern Electricity Distribution Company (NEDCO) have appealed to the consuming public to remain calm over power outages experienced, Tuesday evening in some parts of the country.
Communication from GRIDCo explained that “some transmission lines in the west tripped together with all generating units at Aboadze, Bui, Asogli, Kpone and the Kpong generating stations.”
It said all transmission lines were restored within 4mins of the blackout, however “it took some time for some thermal generating units to restart resulting in the long outage.”
PDS on the other hand attributed the outages experienced within the western and central parts of Accra to “technical challenges upstream.”
“Immediately the situation is rectified, power supply will be restored to affected customers. The inconvenience is very much regretted, PDS said.
For Northern Ghana, “the total outage we’re currently experiencing is as a result of system disturbances on NEDCO’s network. We’ve however been assured that they are doing everything humanly possible to identify, fix and restore supply as soon as possible. Sorry for the inconvenience, ”a release from NEDCO stated.
Some places including Lapaz, Abeka, Sowutum, Mallam, Weija Kasoa, Tema, Kwashieman, Odorkor, Awoshie and parts of northern Ghana were greeted with total black out Tuesday evening.
