FG procures technology to monitor, prevent grid collapse
Written by broadstreet on August 11, 2022
The Federal Government has deployed a new technology as a stop-gap solution to the challenges confronting Nigeria’s power grid, the Transmission Company of Nigeria has said.
Officials of the company said the technology, comprising Internet of Things and the Virtual Private Network, was deployed by the government through TCN to monitor real-time grid operations and help mitigate power system collapse.
It was also gathered that the facility would boost power grid management at the National Control Centre, Osogbo in Osun State, as it would improve real-time operations of the national grid, pending the deployment of a long-term network automation system.
But the TCN stated on Wednesday that with its new technology the power grid would receive improved monitoring, as this would help in its management going forward.
