    C. Asia power outage caused by critical misbalance in grid - Kazakhstan's power system operator

    January 25, 2022 - Interfax Central Asia General News


      NUR-SULTAN. Jan 25 (Interfax) - The major power outage in Central Asia on Tuesday morning was prompted by a critical misbalance in the system, the Kazakhstan Electricity Grid Operating Company (KEGOC) said in a statement available on its website.

      "On 25 January 2022 at 11:59 (Nur-Sultan time), a significant emergency imbalance in the Central Asian power system (Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan) led to a power surge in North-East-South 500 kV power transmission line in Kazakhstan," KEGOC said.

      This prompted the operator to disconnect the North-East-South line from the grid, "cutting power supply to a significant part of consumers in southern Kazakhstan," it said.

      "The amount of load-shedding is about 1,500 MW," it said.

      "Currently, KEGOC, the System Operator, is taking measures to rectify the fault," it said.
