Nigeria’s power quality has improved tremendously to meet the standard required by the West African Power Pool (WAPP), The Nation reports.
The Acting Managing Director/Chief Executive, Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN), Mr. Usman Gur Mohammed, said the Federal Government has worked to achieve that feat. According to him, before now, the power that came from Nigeria was not allowed to mix with power that came to the pool from other countries such as Ghana and Benin Republic because the frequency did not meet the standard required.
Currently, the pool has agreed to synchronise Nigeria’s supply with supplies from other member-countries that belong to the pool because the frequency of power supply from Nigeria is at the same level as supplies from other countries. The improved quality of power supply to the pool will earn substantial forex for the country as the improved supply makes it a good buy for any country within the pool.
