Transmission Company of Nigeria, TCN, participated actively in the recently concluded Power Nigeria Conference and Exhibition which took place at the Eko Hotels, Lagos Island, Lagos State.
The three-day program from 27th to 29th September was declared open by the Honorable Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Mr Babatunde Fashola, SAN. Engr T. Uwah, Managing Director, TSP, on behalf of the MD/CEO, Engr (Dr) Atiku Abubakar, was on hand to deliver a paper on the current status and programs of TCN to wheel all generated electricity to the Distribution Companies.
The Honorable Minister and a lot of other guests visited our TCN stand. On display were grid maps showing proposals for 16GW and 20GW wheeling capacities, power transformer facilities, the last hard copy edition of TCN magazine as well as new fliers on the history and current status of TCN as well as the roles of its two business units ie Transmission Service Provider (TSP) & Independent System Operation (ISO).
The stand was manned by the representatives of Public Affairs, Corporate HQ and Lagos Region as well as technical staff from Lagos Region.
Several visitors came to our stand to make inquiries with regards to what TCN actually does. Some even accused us of being the weakest link in the power value chain and therefore wanted to know what we were doing to change the narrative.
They were enlightened on how TCN was not the weakest link as we are currently far ahead of the generation curve and that we have plans for 10GW, 16GW and 20GW proposals to stay ahead of the generation curve. Execution and completion of the projects would depend on the availability of the funds to complete and commission the planned projects to meet the strategic milestones.
