By Sunday Etuka, Abuja

The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) has attributed the earlier partial grid disturbance to a fire incident at the Afam power generating station, even as it announced that the grid has been restored.

TCN while confirming the development in a statement by the General Manager, Public Affairs, Mrs. Ndidi Mbah, on Monday said, “at 02:41Hrs today, 15th April 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 resulted in a sudden generation loss of 25MW and 305MW respectively, destabilizing the grid and causing a partial collapse”, she explained.

She said, during the incident, the Ibom Power plant was isolated from the grid and was supplying parts of the Port Harcourt Region.

“This further minimized the effect of the system disturbance.

“TCN confirms that the affected section of the grid has been fully restored and stabilized”, she said.

The GM reaffirmed TCN’s commitment to enhancing the resilience and reliability of the national grid and pledged to continue to invest in measures aimed at strengthening the grid infrastructure.
