The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) has announced a 76.8 per cent decline in grid system collapse in its operation.

The TCN said that despite the growing activities of vandals that had been resulting to the grid disturbances, there had been a reduction in grid system collapses, which has increased grid stability in recent years.

TCN attributed the improvement to the continuous effort by the management under Engr. Sule Abdulaziz to strategically expand the grid while harnessing in-house capacities to find solutions to grid stability, pending the deployment of SCADA/EMS.

The TCN General Manager, Public Affairs, Mrs. Ndidi Mbah, who disclosed this in a statement, insisted that the number of grid disturbances /system collapses has gradually reduced in recent years, contrary to popular opinion.

Her words: “Clearly, between 2020 to date (five years), we recorded fourteen total and six partial grid disturbances totalling twenty (20), which represents a 76.47 per cent reduction in grid disturbance, when compared to the previous five years (2015 to 2019), where we had sixty-four total and twenty-one partial grid disturbances, totalling eighty-five (85) times.

“This improvement is, however, not unconnected to the continuous effort by the management under Engr. Sule Abdulaziz to strategically expand the grid while harnessing in-house capacities to find solutions to grid stability, pending the deployment of SCADA/EMS.”

She however assured that the TCN would continued to work hard to increase the grid stability.

“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,” she said.
