Cause of National Power Outage in Ghana

Cause of National Power Outage in Ghana 14th January, 2023

The Ghana GRID Company (GRIDCo) informs the Public that a system disturbance occurred at 11:57  on Saturday 14th January, 2023.

The outage occurred after GRIDCo’s 330kV Aboadze-Anwomanso line tripped followed by a number of lines in the Western corridor of the grid triggering a system disturbance causing all thermal plants and Bui generators and customer load trip.

A raging bush fire under GRIDCo’s high voltage lines near Tarkwa has been identified as the source of the power line trips.  A fire tender from Tarkwa Goldfields is on site to bring the fire under control.

Meanwhile, restoration of the grid commenced immediately and efforts are ongoing to restore power to all affected areas and customers.

GRIDCo  Sincerely apologies for the inconvenience caused by the incidence and is working to restore normal power supply.
