Sabotage acts cause severe load-shedding in Balochistan.
Pakistan Electric Power Company (PEPCO) spokesman said here Friday major reason for recent load-shedding is the destruction of 220 Kv double Circuit Uch-Guddu-Sibbi transmission line in last month, which affected 42 grid stations of Balochistan thus depriving QESCO of 250-300MW.
He said Quetta Electric Supply Company (QESCO) and National Transmission and Dispatch Company (NTDC) had suffered Rs110.03 million and Rs106 million losses, as the miscreants targeted 298 towers and poles - 106 towers of 220Kv, 131 towers of 132Kv and 61 poles of 33Kv, in various parts of Balochistan during past two years.
