The Ghana Grid Company (GRIDCO) has explained the cause of recent widespread power outages in some parts of Ghana.
According to GRIDCO, the power system experienced a system disturbance due to a faulted equipment on the Takoradi Extension-Winneba line.
In a press release dated Sunday, May 8, 2022, GRIDCO observed that “consequently, at generating plants in Aboadze, Tema (except Kpone Thermal Power Plant), Bui and Kpong, were forced to shutdown.
It added that “this caused forced outages within 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.”
The release indicated that “however, the Akosombo and Kpong thermal power plants continued to be in service supplying power.”
