Blackout Looms As Electricity Workers Threaten To Shut Down National Grid

Nigeria’s electrical supply has once again collapsed, with power output falling from a peak of 3,594.60 megawatts (MW) at midnight to a mere 42.7 MW.

At noon on Tuesday, only the Delta Power plant had 41.00 MW of operational power on the grid, while Afam had 1.7 MW.

The system has collapsed twice in less than five days, putting the country in complete darkness for more than 12 hours.

 

Nationwide Blackout Looms As Power Grid Collapses Again

 

Recall that this occurrence follows closely on the heels of two recent grid collapses in just over a 12-hour period, plunging the nation into complete darkness.

Last week Wednesday, the collapse of the nation’s electricity grid threw the country into a blackout.

The Minister of Power attributed the collapse of the grid to a fire outbreak at the Kainji/Jebba station.
