ELECTRICITY: Nigeria records another system collapse

By Eyo Nsima

Nigerians were Wednesday,  thrown into darkness following another system collapse, which affected almost all parts of the nation.

In a statement obtained by The Daily, www.thedaily-ng.com, the Transmission Company of Nigeria, TCN, stated: “The Transmission Company of Nigeria hereby states that at about 11.01 am today, 12th of May, 2021, there was a total system collapse of the grid, as a result of voltage collapse at some parts of the grid.

“TCN commenced grid recovery immediately after the collapse, from Shiroro Generating Station to Katampe TS, Abuja through the Shiroro – Katampe line at 11:29 am, and also through Delta Generating Station to Benin Transmission Substation and has reached Osogbo and parts of Lagos.

“While the grid restoration and power restoration gradually progress to other parts of the country, the cause of voltage collapse that precipitated this failure is equally being investigated.”

It added: “TCN appeals for patience as it works assiduously to ensure full restoration of the grid and consequently power supply to the remaining parts of the country.”
