TCN Statement On System Collapse On The National Electricity Grid

The Transmission Company of Nigeria hereby states that at about 11:01 am today, 12th of May, 2021, there was a total system collapse of the grid, as a result of voltage collapse at some parts of the grid.

TCN commenced grid recovery immediately after the collapse, from Shiroro Generating Station to Katampe TS, Abuja throught the Shiroro – Katampe line at 11:29 am, and also through Delta Generating Station to Benin Transmission Substation and has reached Oshogbo and parts of Lagos.

While the grid restoration and power restoration gradually progress to other parts of the country, the cause of voltage collapse that precipitated this failure is equally being investigated.

TCN appeals for patience as it works assiduously to ensure full restoration of the grid and consequently power supply to the rest of the country.

Ndidi Mbah,
