    PGCB panel starts probe into national grid failure

    October 6, 2022 - Dhaka Tribune


      An investigation committee of the state-owned Power Grid Company of Bangladesh (PGCB) started its probe on Wednesday to identify the reasons behind the national power grid failure that triggered a 7-8 hour long blackout across most of the country from 2:04pm on Tuesday.

      'We started our probe this morning to identify the possible causes behind the national grid disaster and also the exact point of the incident,' Yeakub Elahi Chowdhury, chief of the investigation body and executive director (PandD) of the PGCB, told UNB.

      The PGCB initially formed a five-member investigation committee, headed by Yeakub Elahi Chowdhury, representatives from the Bangladesh Power Development Board (BPDB), Bangladesh University of Engineering and Technology (Buet), and also from other power sector entities, following the national grid failure.
