ECG and GRIDCo: Reduction in WAPCo’s gas supply could result in load management

According to ECG and GRIDCo said the load management has become necessary due to maintenance works being undertaken by a gas supplier in Nigeria and is projected to last three weeks

The Ghana Grid Company Ltd. (GRIDCo) and the Electricity Company of Ghana say reduction in WAPCo’s gas supply could result in load management for three weeks.

In a joint statement on Thursday (13 June), ECG and GRIDCo said the load management has become necessary “due to maintenance works being undertaken by a gas supplier in Nigeria and is projected to last three weeks.”

“The maintenance has caused a reduction in overall power generation capacity in Ghana which could result in load management over the period of the work,” the statement added.

Read the full statement below:

The Ghana Grid Company Ltd (GRIDCo) and the Electricity Company of Ghana, (ECG) wish to inform the public that due to a reduction in gas supply from Nigeria since yesterday, Wednesday 12th June, 2024 some areas across the country have experienced interruption in power supply.

The West Africa Gas Pipeline Company (WAPCo), in a statement, has explained that the reduction in gas supply was due to maintenance works being undertaken by a gas supplier in Nigeria and is projected to last three (3) weeks.

The maintenance has caused a reduction in overall power generation capacity in Ghana which could result in load management over the period of the work.

GRIDCo and ECG however, wish to assure the public that we are collaborating with other stakeholders in the power value chain to optimise available resources to ensure minimal impact of the reduction in gas supply on consumers.

GRIDCo and ECG sincerely apologise for the inconvenience caused.
