MAJOR POWER OUTAGE IN PAKISTAN; CITIES WITHOUT ELECTRICITY INCLUDE LAHORE AND ISLAMABAD

World News

Islamabad: A significant power outage in Pakistan occurred at roughly 7:34 am on Monday, leaving many cities without energy, including Karachi, Lahore, Quetta, and Islamabad, according to AAJ News.

According to a statement from Pakistan’s Ministry of Energy, the national grid’s frequency dropped around 7:34 am, leading to a “widespread breakdown” in the electricity system. Additionally, it stated that Warsak was the starting point for the repair of grid stations.

The Energy Ministry stated, “Initial reports state that the National Grid’s system frequency failed at 7:34 this morning, leading to a significant collapse of the electricity system. Work on system maintenance is moving forward quickly.”

The restoration of grid stations had begun from Warsak, and in the previous hour, a small number of the grids for the Islamabad Supply Company and the Peshawar Supply Company had been brought back online.

According to reports cited by AAJ News, a technical issue in the transmission line from Guddu to Quetta resulted in a decrease in power frequency from the ideal level, which led to the power outage.

The regions of Sindh, Punjab, and Islamabad were affected by the power outage, according to sources. The entire restoration of electricity may take some time, according to sources. In Pakistan, which is currently grappling with an energy crisis and high energy prices, this is the second power outage that has been reported in the last four months.

According to a news report, the power supply to 117 grid stations of Islamabad Energy Supply Company (IESCO), which supplies electricity to Islamabad, Rawalpindi, Attock, Jhelum, Chakwal, and portions of Pakistan-occupied Kashmir (PoK), has been interrupted.

Tweeted IESCO, “Even though the Region Control Center has suspended power to 117 ISCO grid stations, there is still no explanation on why. The management of ISCO maintains close contact with the relevant authorities.”

According to the news report, Lahore experienced a power outage at around 7:25 am. It was challenging for passengers to get to their places of employment because the Orange Line train also stopped. According to sources cited by AAJ News, the outage affected 90% of Pakistan’s economic centre.

According to a news report, there has been no electricity reported in North Nazimabad, Safoora, Saddar, DHA, Bahadurabad, Gulshan-e-Iqbal, Gulistan-e-Johar, Gurumandir, Jamshed Town, Clifton, Nazimabad, and Gulshan-e-Maymar.

According to Quetta Electricity Supply Company authorities, the power outage affected at least 22 districts in Balochistan. The authorities were looking for information about the technical error. They added that National Transmission and Despatch Company was attempting to bring back the power.

According to the report, the three main hospitals in Peshawar—Khyber Teaching Hospital, Lady Reading Hospital, and Hayatabad Medical Complex—were using generators to continue running following the energy outage.
