Karachi, 10th May 2017: Power supply in some areas of Karachi was interrupted briefly due to the tripping at one of the units of K-Electric’s power plants that occurred on Tuesday and low gas pressure on Wednesday. In order to manage the load, select areas of the city faced intermittent interruption in power supply on Wednesday. The load management spells were rotated and kept brief in duration to minimize the inconvenience.
K-Electric is working closely with the relevant authorities for restoration of gas pressure during the day. All efforts are being made to ensure required pressures are available throughout the day.
Additionally, one of the units at KE’s Bin Qasim Power Station experienced tripping on Tuesday evening. KE teams are working round the clock to restore the supply from this unit and expects the unit to be online by day end Wednesday.
K-Electric regrets any inconvenience caused to its valued customers.
