The Ghana Grid Company, (GRIDCo) says it has resolved the power outage that occurred earlier on Saturday.
GRIDCo in a statement in the evening of Saturday noted that it’s National Interconnected Transmission System has also been fully restored and is stable.
“The Ghana Grid Company, (GRIDCo) wishes to inform the Ghanaian public that as of 17:57GMT power has been restored to all areas earlier affected by the outage to its Transmission Lines,” it said.
The power transmission company early on announced that the power outage which occurred on Saturday, January 14 around 11:57 am was due to a systems disturbance.
According to them, the power outage occurred as a result of a trip in its 330kv Aboadze-Anwomaso line.
The statement added that this resulted in a system disturbance causing all thermal plants, Bui generators and customer loads to trip.
GRIDCo said the cause of the trip in the power lines was as a result of a raging bush fire under its high-voltage lines near Tarkwa.
GRIDCo extended “its appreciation to the Ghanaian public for its patience as efforts were made to restore the NITS and power to Ghanaians.”
“Once again GRIDCo apologises for the inconvenience caused by this incident,” the statement concluded.
