The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) through its GM Public Affairs; Ndidi Mbah hereby states that at about 11.01 am today, 12th of May 2021, there was a total system collapse of the grid, as a result of voltage collapse at some parts of the grid.

However, the TCN had commenced grid recovery immediately after the collapse, from Shiroro Generating Station to Katampe TS, Abuja through the Shiroro – Katampe line at 11:29 am, and also through Delta Generating Station to Benin Transmission Substation and has reached Osogbo and parts of Lagos.

While the grid restoration and power restoration gradually progress to other parts of the country, the cause of voltage collapse that precipitated this failure is equally being investigated.

TCN appeals for patience as it works assiduously to ensure full restoration of the grid and consequently power supply to the remaining parts of the country.
