TCN Repairs National Grid

The national grid, which collapsed earlier on Monday, September 26, according to the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN), has been repaired.

This information was published by the TCN’s general manager of public affairs, Ndidi Mbah, in a statement last night.

“The restoration of the affected part of the grid commenced immediately at 11.55 am with Osogbo/Ihovbor back to the grid followed by Jebba/Osogbo, Kainji/Jebba, Benin/Onisha, Shiroro/Kaduna, Shiroro/Katampe, and Alaoji/Ikot-Ekpene.

Others are Lokoja/Gwagwalada, Odukpani/Ikot Ekpene, Benin/Omotosho, Oke-Aro/Ikeja west, Egbin/Oke-Aro and Kaduna/Kano.”

TCN said the collapse was due to “a sudden drop in system frequency, which created system instability”.

“The National Control Centre (NCC) said a full-scale investigation is being conducted to establish and ascertain the cause of the partial disturbance as this unwholesome event has resulted in aggregated generation loss” the statement read
