The Ghana GRID Company says they are working to restore normal power supply after a systems disturbance occurred on Saturday morning.
Most parts of the country have experienced a power cut.
The company in a statement issued by its Corporate Communications Department says the “330kV Aboadze to Anwomaso line tripped, followed by a number of lines on the western corridor of the grid, triggering a system disturbance.
This has caused all thermal plants and Bui generators and customer loads to trip”.
According to the statement,the trip was caused by a raging bushfire under high voltage lines near Tarkwa.
“A fire tender from Tarkwa Goldfields is on site to bring the fire under control,”
“GRIDCo sincerely apologises for the inconvenience caused by this incidence and is working to restore normal power supply.”
