Power Generation Hits 3,277 Mega Watts
The Nigeria Electricity System Operator (SO) on Tuesday said that the power producers at 06.00 hours generated 3,277 Mega Watts (MW).
According to its power performance for Monday production, SO note that the peak generation for the day under consideration was 3,886.50MW while lowest power generation was 3,009MW.
It added that the total energy it sent out to the 11 distribution companies on Monday was 3,402MW.
Meanwhile, the Nigerian Electricity Supply Industry (NESI) had said that it the SO on Sunday supplied 3,422MW to the 11 DisCos.
According to the daily summary of the sector’s performance that NESI posted on its website on Monday, gas shortage caused a loss of 3144MW.
It added that in the day under review there was 121MW frequency constraint and 482MW line constraint, although there was on water management constraint.
The estimated cost of the constraint was an equivalent of N1, 799, 000, 000.
NESI said that: ” On September 11 2016, average power sent out was 3422MWh/hour (up by 158MWh/h). The reported gas constraint was 3144MW. The reported line constraint was 482MW according to TCN. The reported high frequency constraint is 121 MW. The water management constraint was 0MW. The power sector lost the estimated equivalent of N1, 799, 000, 000 on September 11 2016 due to constraints.”
