Electricity in Nigeria Hits all-time High of Daily Transmission
The Transmission Company of Nigeria, TCN, on Thursday, August 6, disclosed that it had attained an all-time maximum energy transmission per day of 101,088 megawatt hours (MWH) on the national grid.
In a statement signed by its General Manager, Public Affairs, Seun Olagunju, TCN said the feat was recorded on Wednesday, August 5, 2015.
It explained that the previous record of 99,450MWH was attained on October 31, 2014 and that the new feat was achieved with the supervision of its management contractor, Manitoba Hydro International (MHI), which it said had articulated short, medium and long terms grid expansion plans aimed at growing and sustaining improvement in the nation’s transmission grid.
The company however said it has continued to pursue these expansion plans vigorously to ensure that its grid expansion goals and timelines are met.
The statement further revealed that the new record of 101,088MWH was in line with its grid expansion plan and that the fact that the company has been able to comfortably wheel the maximum energy ever moved along the nation’s transmission line is indicative of the networks growing capability to evacuate even more energy in the system.
