The power outages which are being witnessed in parts of the country are expected to end this week.

This is because the transmission company, Ghana Grid Company, (GRIDCo), has completed the diversion of its 330kV Aboadze-Tema transmission line traversing the ongoing highway interchange at Pokuase in Greater Accra.

Ghanaians especially those in Accra and parts of Western Region, were last Tuesday and Wednesday thrown into darkness following technical challenges which occurred at the Accra Central Bulk Supply Point.

The situation was compounded by the diversion of 330kV Aboadze-Tema transmission due to the ongoing interchange at Pokuase.

On Thursday, March 14, 2019, Energy Minister John-Peter Amewu and some officials of the Ministry including CEO of GRIDCo, Jonathan Amoako-Baah, as well as CEO of VRA Emmanuel Antwi Darkwa, visited Pokuase to inspect the tower.

In an interview with the media, Mr Peter Amewu assured that the diversion would be completed in about five days to enable GRIDCo to restore power to the affected areas.

In a statement issued on Tuesday and signed by Albert Kwesi Quainoo, Head of Public Relations, GRIDCo announced that it has completed the diversion on the 330kV tower.

“GRIDCo appreciates the support of the general public during the diversion works,” the statement said.
