ECG speeds up maintenance works to avert further dumsor

The Electricity Company of Ghana  (ECG)  has disclosed to Citi Business News it is working to complete all planned maintenance works by the middle of November, 2016 in order to reduce the current power outages experienced in parts of the country.

The power distribution company, on Thursday explained that the creeping cuts in power supply experienced in parts of the country is not an indication of a return of load shedding or dumsor.

Some consumers have been anticipating a load shedding regime with the intermittent cuts in power supply.

But the Director of Operations of the ECG, Engineer Tetteh Okyne told Citi Business News, his outfit has also put in place adequate measures to offer satisfactory services to customers.

‘We have the equipment we have the people trained, where ever it is practical we don’t put off the supply.

We do the work whiles the supply is there and looking at the  period in which we are we are trying to bring forward all our planned maintenance so that we can finish everything by the first or second week in November for 2016 so that after that then we know that we don’t have any planned maintenance to do if there is anything that will only be emergencies or something critical that has come up’. He said.
