A total of 16 hydro, gas and steam power stations recorded various degrees of reduction in the quantum of electricity they produced within a period of 24 hours, The Punch reports.
According to the latest industry data obtained from the Transmission Company of Nigeria in Abuja on Thursday, power generation in the affected stations dropped by 248 megawatts between August 29 and August 30, 2017. Findings showed that electricity production reduced in three hydro, two steam and 11 gas power stations located in different parts of the country.
The total quantum of electricity lost by the 16 power stations during the review period was put at 248MW as the country generated 3,411MW electricity on August 30, 2017, down from the 3,659MW that was recorded the preceding day.
Meanwhile, additional information from the TCN’s data on Thursday showed that the reported gas constraint was 643MW, while frequency management constraint that was due to loss of Discos feeders was put at 2,255MW. “The power sector lost an estimated N1,391,000,000 on August 30, 2017 due to constraints,” the transmission company said.topics from
