The Nigerian Electricity Supply Industry (NESI) says 28 power stations sent out an average of 3,134mw/hour of electricity on Feb. 8, The Guardian reports.
According to the industry’s website’s report, the power sector also lost an estimated N1, 043,000, 000 on Feb.8 due to constraints of gas supply and water supply to the power generating stations. According to the report, the total gas constraints for the period resulted in the loss of 2,024MW while the reported grid constraint was zeroMW and the water management constraint, 150MW.
On sector reform activities, NESI said Delta power station lost functionality from four turbines due to a combination of mechanical difficulties and maintenance work at a Nigeria Petroleum Development Company (NPDC) gas well. The report also said there was increase in gas constraints due to the maintenance work on the NPDC gas well.
