STAFF REPORT KHI: The tripping of four units of Bin Qasim Power Plant blanketed more than half of the city of Karachi with darkness as the electricity supply got suspended from over 30 grid stations. Some parts Baluchistan were also affected by the massive breakdown.
The K-Electrics management and engineers rebooted the supply systems as per standard operating procedures.
The halting of electricity supply also gave birth to several allied problems as water supply also got affected due to non-supply of electricity to pumping stations responsible to supply water across the city.
The affected areas included Baldia, SITE, Liaquatabad, North Nazimabad, Federal B Area, Sarjani, Gulshan Iqbal, Gulistan-e-Johar, Orangi, Airport, Landhi, Korangi, Malir, Old City Area, Kimarri, and Lyari.
