Power has been restored to all the 330kv transmission stations across the entire grid, the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) said on Thursday.

The company disclosed in a statement that electricity was restored to the transmission stations at about 5:54pm on Wednesday.

“The Kainji – Birnin Kebbi line, however, tripped on fault but was restored,” the statement read.

It added, “TCN’s 330kV substations feed 132kV substations, through which distribution companies offtake electricity they deliver to electricity consumers nationwide.”

Power was restored to the transmission stations a day after TCN announced that the nation’s electricity grid had suffered a system collapse, leading to a power outage in various parts of the country.

But the company’s General Manager (Public Affairs), Ndidi Mbah, had noted that experts were already making effort to fully restore electricity on the grid.
