The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN), has disclosed that grid restoration is in progress and has reached advanced stages with power supply now available in the West, North Central, South, East, and a large portion of the Northern parts of the country.
TCN’s General Manager, Public Affairs, Ndidi Mbah disclosed the development in a statement on Thursday.
TheFact Daily had earlier reported that the grid collapsed barely three weeks after the company announced to have achieved 400 days uninterrupted grid stability.
The power supply restoration was sequel to the total grid collapse, which occurred at about 12.35 am, this morning, causing nationwide outage.
TCN said, in the course of the grid restoration, the process initially suffered a setback but was promptly addressed.
“The incident notwithstanding, TCN is determined to continue to do its best to ensure grid stability”, TCN said.
Meanwhile, it attributed the collapse to a fire incident on Kanji/Jebba 330kV line 2, which according to it, was being investigated, with the view to forestalling future occurrence and invariably further strengthen the grid.
