In less than a month’s time Bangladesh suffered from power outage for the second time. It is learnt that due to technical problems in 132KV line in Ashuganj Power House, the national grid went off. The power went off at quarter to twelve.
The production of power began at some unit at around quarter to three in the afternoon and in some power was restored in some important places.
The Power Development Board was generating only around 1250MW of electricity at around 8:00 pm against the usual generation of around 3500MW. Officials said that the power generation would become relatively normal by early hours of Sunday.
