The probe committee submitted a preliminary report to the Ministry of Energy about the reasons for the nationwide power breakdown.
According to reports, Guddu Power CEO Hamad Amir Hashmi formed an inquiry committee which interviewed various people. Meanwhile, the entire shift of Old Guddu Power Plant was found to be negligent. The breakdown was caused by incorrect operation by staff at the old unit of Guddu Power Plant.
The old unit of the 600 MW Guddu Power Plant supplies electricity to Balochistan. Incorrect switching caused a transmission line malfunction and tripped NTDC’s transmission system. Hamad Amir Hashmi, CEO of Guddu Power Plant, a central power generation company, said that the inquiry committee would complete its report in two days.
