Why West Africa’s biggest electricity plant will be shut for three days – TCN

Nigeria’s electricity generation dropped by 676MW as Egbin power plant shut down for maintenance.

A notice issued by the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) read that the station was shut down as at 11:13 hours of 18th December 2023, to allow the Nigeria Gas Company (NGC) to maintain a linking gas pipeline supplying gas to Egbin Power Station.

The station will be shut down for 3 days from today, the company stated.

“This means a reduction of 676MW of bulk power generated into the nation’s grid for 3 days and consequently the quantum of bulk power available to be delivered to distribution companies load centers nationwide for the period”, TCN explained.
