Electricity: TCN Restores Supply After System Collapse

The Transmission Company of Nigeria, TCN says the national grid has been fully restored after the system collapse, which occurred on Thursday. 

The collapse occurred while the grid was recovering from an earlier partial system disturbance.

The TCN General Manager, Public Affairs, Ndidi Mbah, who made this known in a statement in Abuja said the full restoration of the grid had been achieved.

She said the initial disturbance of the grid was a partial collapse of the system, adding that it was still supplying Port-Harcourt, Aba, Omoku, Yenegoa, Afam, among others, through Afam IV, Rivers Independent Power Plant and Omoku power stations.

Mbah said efforts immediately commenced to synchronise other parts of the network, but as restoration reached advanced stage, the situation suddenly degenerated into a collapse of the nation’s grid.
