The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) says the power sector has recorded an all-time national peak of 5,615.40MW.

A statement issued on Tuesday in Lagos by Ndidi Mbah, General Manager, Public Affairs, TCN, said the country achieved the new record on February 28.

The statement added that the power generated was efficiently transmitted through the nation’s transmission grid at a frequency of 50.20Hz by 9.30 pm on Sunday.

According to the statement, the transmission surpassed the previous peak generation of 5,593 40MW, which occurred on February 25 by 22.0MW.

“Also, on February 26, 2021, TCN equally transmitted a new maximum daily energy of 116,891 14MWH, which is higher than the previous value of 116,121 42MWH achieved on February 25, 2021, by 769.72MWH,” the statement explained.

Reacting to the development, Sule Abdulaziz, Managing Director, TCN, reiterated that the peak generation’s consistent increase was due to synergy among power sector participants and concerted efforts by the TCN.

Mr. Abdulaziz said this aimed to ensure that generated power was wheeled to distribution load centres nationwide.

“TCN will continue to work hard to complete ongoing projects and undertake new ones as it strives to put in place a robust transmission and, despite challenges posed by vandalism and insecurity.

“All hands must be on deck in the fight to safeguard electricity installations nationwide,” Mr. Abdulaziz added. (NAN)
