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.
