The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) has confirmed that the national grid has been restored after its partial collapse on Monday.
TCN’s General Manager, Public Affairs, Mrs Ndidi Mbah, made this known in a statement in Abuja.
Mbah explained that the national grid experienced partial system disturbance at about 10.51am earlier in the day.
It was caused by a sudden drop in system frequency, which created system instability.
She said that the restoration of the affected grid commenced immediately at 11.55 am with Osogbo/Ihovbor, followed by Jebba/Osogbo, Kainji/Jebba, Benin/Onitsha, 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.
She said the grid restoration has almost been completed, adding that the Nigerian Electricity Supply Industry (NESI) regrets any inconveniences caused.
Mbah promised that the National Control Centre would launch a full-scale investigation “to establish and ascertain the cause of the partial disturbance as this unwholesome event has resulted in aggregated generation loss.”
