Production at four units of the Ashuganj Power Plant in Brahmanbaria was disrupted on Sunday following a sudden fault in the Ashuganj-Kishoreganj double circuit transmission line.

Engineer Sazzad Hossain, also managing director of the Ashuganj Power Plant, said power generation in four units of nine at the Ashuganj plant shut down suddenly in the morning due to a fault in 132kv Ashuganj-Kishoreganj double circuit transmission line.

The power supply remained disconnected in various areas including Ashuganj and Bhoirab following the shutdown.

In the afternoon, the power plant engineers repaired two of the four units.

“They are working hard to resume production as soon as possible after repairing the plant,” said Sazzad.
