The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) disclosed that bulk power has been restored to every 330 KVA Transmission Station under Nigeria’s grid after the earlier grid collapse on Wednesday.
This was disclosed in a statement by TCN’s General Manager, Mrs Ndidi Mbah, in Abuja on Thursday, citing that full transmission to KVA stations was achieved by 5:54 pm on Wednesday, across the entire grid.
The statement added that the system collapse earlier this week was a result of partial voltage collapse in the National Grid, citing issues along the Kainji – Birnin Kebbi line had been resolved.
TCN said the 330 KVA substations feed 32kVA substations, through DisCos that deliver the bulk electricity across the country.
