Nigeria’s Power System collapses, recovers
At about 11.01 am today, 12th of May, 2021, the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN), said there was a total system collapse of the Nigeria’s national grid, as a result of voltage collapse at some parts of the grid.
TCN, in a statement stated that it 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”.
TCN however, 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.
