Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) says the power sector has recorded an all-time national peak of 5,459.50MW.

TCN’s spokeswoman Ndidi Mbah said on Thursday that the new record was achieved on October 28.

Ms. Mbah said the power generated was efficiently transmitted through the nation’s transmission grid at a frequency of 50.26Hz by 8:15 p.m. on the said date.

The milestone in transmission is higher than any peak ever recorded in the nation’s power industry as of date, according to her.

The new peak surpassed the 5,420.30MW achieved on August 18 by 39.20MW, per Ms. Mbah’s statement.

TCN boss Sule Abdulaziz commended all the players in the power sector value chain for the feat.

Mr. Abdulaziz attributed the gradual but steady improvement in the quantum of power delivery to collaboration by the sector players.

He added that the unbridled effort by the federal government, through the ministry of power, in setting the right environment for seamless operations contributed to the feat.

The TCN helmsman expressed optimism that operatives in the sector would continue to work together towards ensuring the continued increase in the quantum of power available to consumers nationwide.
