The Ghana Grid Company Gridco has blamed an emergency valve at the West Africa Gas Pipeline Company, WAPCo, for power cuts in parts of the country today.
According to the company, the action ended up curtailing gas supply to some generating plants.
A statement by Gridco said to avert a total system shutdown, power supply to some Bulk Supply Points was disrupted, causing outages in parts of the country.
Parts of the country were off from the National grid this morning with some customers complaining on social media.
GRIDCo in the statement called for calm whiles giving assurance that engineers are currently on-site working to restore gas supply and ultimately get the affected parts back to the national grid.
It said key stakeholders in the Power Value Chain, including WAPCo, are currently working to restore gas supply shortly.
Meanwhile, arrangements have been made for other generating plants to come online to restore supply to the affected areas.
