Two containers of electricity transmission equipment have gone missing from the ports, the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) has disclosed.
The disclosure was made by a staff of the company, Usman Gur Mohammed, while speaking with journalists on Monday, July 8, The Nation reports.
Legit.ng gathers that Mohammed added that one of the 775 containers recovered last week was empty.
He said the West African Power Poll frequency control standard had been attained by the company.
Mohammed said the company is “going to recover about 2,000 to 3,000mw with the present upgrade of its equipment.”
According to Mohammed, the distribution companies are yet to match with a proportional upgrade of their equipment, despite the fact that massive investment has been recorded in the power sector from the transmission end.
He blamed this for the frequent system collapses in the Nigeria Electricity Supply Industry.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) said that the collapse of the national grid on Friday, May 8, was caused by a multiple tripping on its substation in Onitsha, Anambra.
The managing director of TCN, Mohammed Usman, made the disclosure at a news conference in Abuja.
The national electricity grid had experienced some disturbances resulting in reduction of electricity allocation to electricity distribution companies in the country.
