Gas supply to some power generating plants in the Republic of Ghana have been cut, thereby resulting in power outages in parts of the West African nation.
According to the country’s power transmission company, GRIDCo, there has been an emergency closure of valve at the West Africa Gas Pipeline Company (WAPCo) on Wednesday at about 6:30am.
In a press statement, GRIDCo noted that key stakeholders in the power value chain including WAPCo, are currently working to restore gas supply shortly.
Meanwhile, the company said it has made arrangement for other generating plants to come online to restore supply to the affected areas.
“Any inconvenience caused is deeply regretted,” the statement said.
It would be recalled that several parts of Ghana experienced power outages last Saturday, compelling consumers to go on social media platforms to express their frustrations over the situation.
GRIDCo, in a statement, blamed the situation on interruptions on gas supply from the offshore field.
