Guddu Thermal Power Plant trips, power supply suspended in parts of country

KANDHKOT: Guddu Thermal Power Plant tripped due to heavy fog and leakage from the gas pipeline which resulted into shut down of its 11 units, official said.

The shutdown of these 11 units caused suspension of electricity for 12 hours in various areas of Sindh, Balochistan and Punjab. Authorities said the units will be restored as soon as the gas leakage is repaired.

The Plant has 17 power units, out of which only six are currently working.

The tripping of the plant’s transmission lines affected the 500KV power line from the national grid, forcing Jamshoro and Bin Qasim power stations to shut down.

It is pertinent to mention here that Pakistan was plunged into darkness after a key power transmission line broke down early on Sunday in an incident being initially blamed on a rebel attack.

The power failure, one of the worst the country has experienced, caused electricity to be cut in major cities throughout the country, including the capital Islamabad.
