Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) has said that grid disturbances/system collapses have declined by 76 per cent, 47 per cent.

It also said that between 2020 to date (five years), it recorded 14 total and six partial grid disturbances totalling 20, which represents a 76 per cent.47 per cent reduction in grid disturbance, when compared to the previous five years, (2015 to 2019) where there were 64 total and 21 partial grid disturbances, totalling 85 times.

This improvement is, however, not unconnected to the continuous efforts by the management under Engineer Sule Abdulaziz to strategically expand the grid while harnessing in-house capacities to find solutions to grid stability, pending the deployment of System Control and lack of Adequate Data Acquisition (SCADA).

“No doubt, there is room for improvement, and TCN will continue to work hard to further reduce the number of grid disturbances to the barest minimum” . General Manager, Public Affairs of TCN, Ndidi Mbah, said in a statement.
