At a news conference in Islamabad, Khan stated, “We would restore the system between Maghrib and Isha, today.” He told the public that an inquiry panel had been assembled to look into the situation and that it will provide a report in five days.
The breakdown caused a shortfall of 8,000 megawatts, but the minister told reporters that at least 4,700 megawatts have been restored.
He added that the Sukkur Electric Supply Company’s (SEPCO) supply had been partially restored and stated that the Faisalabad and Multan regions had been fully restored.
The tripped plants will need to be restored for a few hours, according to Khan, who expressed hope that Karachi’s power plants will also be repaired.
Khan stated that Quetta and Karachi both need to have their electricity restored because the breakdown was caused by tripping that originated in the port city and extended over the rest of the country.
The allegations of interruptions in Sindh and other regions of the nation caused by “accidental faults” in the southern transmission system had already been confirmed by the Federal Ministry of Energy.
According to a tweet from the ministry, “A number of power plants are tripping in a row due to an unexpected defect in the southern transmission system, which is limiting the supply of electricity in the southern portions of the country.”
The ministry declared that it was carefully examining the cause of the malfunction and would soon restart the power supply system.
According to officials who spoke to lescobillonline.net under the condition of anonymity, the problem has caused a 6,000-megawatt deficiency in the national grid.
Following a major power outage that left several areas of Pakistan without electricity on Thursday, the Federal Minister for Energy ‘Khurram Dastgir Khan’ has promised Pakistanis that all power will be restored by the time of isha prayers.
On Thursday, there was a significant power outage in parts of Sindh, Baluchistan, and Punjab as a result of a problem with the nation’s southern energy transmission system.
