Ghana Grid Company (GRIDCo) explains causes of power system disturbance on Tokoradi Extension Winneba Line.
In the release, Ghana Grid Company (GRIDCo) said, the power system experienced a system disturbance on Saturday, May 07, 2022 at exactly 19:52h due to a faulted equipment on the Takoradi Extension-Winneba line.
Adding, they said “consequently, at generating plants in Aboadze, Tema, (except Kpone Thermal Power Plant), Bui and Kpong were forced to shutdown.
This forced the outages with the coastal corridor of the National Grid which led to power supply interruptions in some parts of Greater Accra, Western, Central, Middle and Northern parts of the country.
However, Akosombo and Kpone Thermal Plants continued to be in service supplying power.
The power disturbance was addressed after hours. “Restoration began immediately and supply was restored to all bulk supply points by 23:29 h.” GRIDCo stated.
They assured their stakeholders that it will continue to work towards the provision of a reliable power system for Ghana’s socio-economic development.
