TCN restores National grid hours after collapse

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

The TCN announced this in a statement released last night by its General Manager, Public Affairs, Ndidi Mbah.

“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.”

While explaining the cause of the incident, the TCN said it 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
