TCN Gives Reason For Collapse Of National Grid

Lucky Obukohwo, Reporting

The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN), has given the reason for the sudden collapse of the national grid.

In a statement, the TCN said that at 02:41hrs on April 15, 2024, a fire erupted at the Afam V 330kV bus bar coupler, leading to the tripping of units at Afam III and Afam VI.

This, it said, led to a sudden generation loss of 25MW and 305MW respectively, destabilising the grid and causing a partial collapse.

“During the incident, the Ibom Power Plant was isolated from the grid and was supplying parts of the Port Harcourt Region.

“This further minimised the effect of the system disturbance.

“TCN confirms that the affected section of the grid has been fully restored and stabilised.

“TCN reaffirms its commitment to enhancing the resilience and reliability of the national grid and pledges to continue investing in measures aimed at strengthening the grid infrastructure,” it said.
