The Transmission Company of Nigeria,TCN has announced that there will be a 300 megawatts (mw) drop in power supply.
The drop is due to the shutdown of Shiroro Power Station for maintenance and repairs. Shiroro Power Plc has announced that its Power Station will be shut down for three days, from Monday, 27th to Wednesday, 29th January, 2014.
During the period, grid generation will reduce by 300MW, hence the nationwide load shedding. The impact of the load shedding would be higher in the Northern axis of the nation, especially Kano, due to voltage instability issues previously affecting power supply in that axis.
TCN has issued an apology to all Nigerians who will be affected by the voltage drop, promising better and reliable power supply in months to come.
