The Management of Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) Tuesday announced that the nation has achieved a new electricity transmission peak of 4545MW through its national network.
A statement by TCN management, signed by the General Manager, Public Affairs, Seun Olagunju, said the feat was achieved at 21.45hrs on Monday.
The previous power transmission peak of 4517MW was attained on 23rd December, 2012.
It will be recalled that TCN Management had, only last week, informed the general public that electricity wheeling to the Distribution companies has improved to over 4000MW due to improvement in fuel supply to the power generation plants.
TCN assures that it will continue to work towards enhancing its power wheeling capability and reliability of the network to be able to deliver more quality electricity from the Generation plants to the Distribution companies nationwide.
“Expanding this support both bilaterally with the individual countries and to the Multinational Joint Task Force, which the Lake Chad Basin countries and Benin are in the process of standing up to coordinate their counter Boko Haram campaign,” the statement said.
