The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) has said power generation in the country is now at 4,748 Megawatts.
This was contained in a statement issued by Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer (System Operation/Market Operation) of TCN, Mr. Dipak Sarma, in Abuja on Tuesday.
The statement said the feat was made possible due to a coordinated effort of TCN with the generating companies and the distribution companies.
It said that this was based on the wheeling capability of the TCN network and implementation of ‘real-time online power optimisation tools’ developed by the company’s National Control Centre (NCC).
It said that more megawatts could be generated since fuel supply to the generators had been stable and adequate.
