TCN Records 15 System Collapses In 2017

The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) has so far recorded 15 system collapses in 2017, indicating strong evidence of the weakness of the transmission infrastructure to wheel power from the generation companies to the distribution companies, THISDAY reports.

According to the second quarter 2017 performance scorecard by the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC), TCN recorded five system collapses in the first quarter of 2017 and 10 system collapses in the second quarter of 2017.

The scorecard showed that the five system collapses recorded in the first quarter were total collapses of the transmission grid. However, eight out of the 10 system collapses in the second quarter were total collapses while two were partial collapses of the system, according to NERC.
