Nigerians To Experience Drop In Electricity Supply

Published on November 7, 2013 by   ·   1 Comment

Transmission Company of Nigeria, TCN, has indicated that electricity generation in the country will drop by 400megawatts beginning from Monday through Saturday this week.

According to TCN, this will consequently lead to a six-day nationwide power rationing.

The firm, in a statement, explained that the drop in power generation would be as a result of maintenance work on one of Shell Petroleum Development Company’s gas plant.

TCN said: “There will be a reduction in generation output by 400MW, from 4 Monday to 9 Saturday, November, 2013.

“This is due to the SPDC’s scheduled maintenance work on Okoloma gas plant supplying gas to Afam VI power plant, thereby leading to the shutdown of the power plant, resulting in nationwide power rationing.”

TCN said the shutdown of Afam VI power plant became necessary to allow SPDC inspect and carry out routine maintenance work on the Okoloma natural gas station in Afam, Rivers State, to ensure its technical integrity.
