The Ghana Grid Company (GRIDco) has attributed the interruption in power supply to some parts of the country on Wednesday, 24 March 2021, to an upstream compressor fault reported by the Ghana Gas Company.

In a statement, the state power transmitter said: “At 1.02 am on Wednesday, March 24, 2021, a compressor fault upstream, reported by the Ghana Gas Company, led to the loss of 750MW of power from some generating plants; specifically, Karpowership and VRA’s Aboadze units.”

It continued: “The situation affected power supply to parts of the Greater Accra and Central regions, particularly Accra East, Winneba, Techiman and Sunyani.”
