Power supply worsens as TCN records 6 systems collapse

The nation’s epileptic power situation is set to worsen as Transmission Company of Nigeria, TCN, recorded six systems collapses in January 2018.

The development culminated in the damage of nine vital components, which Vanguard learned, will cost the company N3.85 billion to procure relevant equipment and rehabilitate within nine months.

Investigation by Vanguard showed that the equipment include 1x150mva, 330/132kv T1A Mitsubishi power transformer in Jos, which was completely burnt, and will take N850 million to replace.

Another major burnt equipment was the 1x30mva, 330/33kv T2 Toshiba transformer at Gusau substation, which would require N300 million for a total replacement.
