The Ghana Grid Company has revealed that the power outages in parts of the country on May 7, 2022, were a result of a system disturbance caused by faulty equipment on the Takoradi Extension–Winneba line.
The company in a statement said the situation caused all generating plants in Aboadze, Bui and Kpong to shut down.
Plants in Tema were also forced to shut down, with the exception of the Kpone Thermal Power Plant.
“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 statement said.
