    January 25, 2022 - Interfax Kazakhstan General Newswire


      ALMATY. Jan 25 (Interfax-Kazakhstan) - Cities in the countries of Central Asia plunged in darkness due to large-scale power outages across the region.

      Kazakh Electricity Grid Operating Company (KEGOC) reported that there was a sharp imbalance in power distribution in the Central Asia grid that caused widespread blackouts.

      "On January 25, at 11:59 a.m. (Nur-Sultan), a significant imbalance in the grid power system of Central Asia (Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan), caused a frequency and voltage surge in the 500kV North-South high-voltage transmission line," KEGIC said.

      The emergency automation (automatic frequency unloading) has been triggered to disconnect the Almaty and Almaty region due to the sudden shortage of active power in the system. The current shortage now stands at 1,500 megawatts.

      Uzbek Ministry of Energy, said that a major accident in the power grids of Kazakhstan caused power outages in the cities of Almaty, Shymkent, Taras, Turkestan (regions), and nearby areas. Bishkek, Osh, and Chu regions in Kyrgyzstan have been also cut off power.

      Tashkent reports the subway shut down after a malfunctioning in the power emergency systems, traffic lights are off, pump pressure in the water supply system dropped, mobile connectivity is sporadic.
