The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) has announced that the national electricity grid, which collapsed in the early hours of Monday, has been fully restored.

Gatekeepers News reports that the announcement was made by the TCN General Manager, Public Affairs, Ndidi Mbah, in a statement released on Monday afternoon.

The grid had collapsed from 2,583.77MW at 2 am on Monday to 64.7MW around 3 am, but now, it has been fully restored.

Mbah explained that the collapse of the national grid was caused by a fire outbreak at the Afam power generating station.

“The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) announces the full restoration of the national grid following a fire incident at the Afam power generating station, which caused a partial disturbance of the nation’s grid.

“At 02:41Hrs today, 15th April 2024, a fire erupted at the Afam V 330kV bus bar coupler, leading to the tripping of units at Afam III and Afam VI. This resulted in a sudden generation loss of 25MW and 305MW respectively, destabilizing the grid and causing a partial collapse.
