The shutdown was for routine maintenance and was scheduled to come back on stream after 10 working days.

The mechanical fault that led to a shortage in supply of Gas to the Aboadze Thermal Enclave Plant have successfully been repaired.

But CEO of Ghana National Gas Company George Sipa Yankey, speaking on Accra-based Starr FM  said the maintenance work was over.

“All the major works that need to be done have been done and hopefully by the end of today or tomorrow, I’m confident we will finish before the ten-day we gave to the public. Let me assure you, the power situation is being resolved and has always been resolved and we are going to enjoy stable power supply from now onwards, the Akosombo is rising and this is the last time Ghana gas is going to shutdown, we don’t want to shut down again.

"We are building a serial converter station so that when the one that we are operating is due for servicing, the new one that is being installed will be operating while we service this one,” he said.
