ECG Releases Timetable For Outages

The Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) has released a nine-day timetable to guide Ghanaians on the announced planned blackouts in most parts of the country. 


This has been attributed to the shutdown of the Atuabo Gas Processing Plant by the Ghana Gas Company Limited to make way for a maintenance programme.


The maintenance programme which began on March 25 will last for days and will ensure the reliability of the gas processing plant and transmission infrastructure after completion, the Ministry of Energy said in a statement dated March 29.


The Ministry therefore officially announced parts of the country will be experiencing intermittent power outages dubbed “dum sie sie” to wit, “shut down for maintenance”.


“The shutdown will affect gas supply to some power plants and will ultimately result in interruption of power supply to some consumers”, it said.


A joint press statement from the GRIDCo and EC on Thursday said the shutdown will result in a 150-megawatt power shortfall- meaning the outage will be minimal.


This will be in force from 6 pm to 11 pm and will end on April 7.


Below is the load management schedule released by the ECG:
