Four power systems collapses recorded so far in 2015 – TCN

The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) has said that unlike 2013 and 2014 when the power sector had persistent records of collapses (22 in 2013 and nine in 2014) in the system, in the last two quarters of 2015 (January to June), it recorded only four collapses in Nigeria’s electricity supply systems..

The company’s general manager, public affairs, Seun Olagunju said in a recent release in Abuja that two of the four incidents occurred in May and resulted in low generation of about 1400 megawatts..

Olagunju also explained that most of the collapses had come from shortages in gas supply and not necessarily from transmission constraints..

She equally noted that the System Operations (SO) of TCN has secured spinning reserve contracts of 295MW, to provide stability and cushion the system in an event of sudden load/generation changeover.
