Between Monday and Thursday last week, five power generating turbines and four plants were shut down, The Punch reports.

It was gathered that five turbines and a plant were shut down due to gas constraints; one plant stopped functioning as a result of high frequency issues; another suffered line tripping, while the last was out on maintenance.

The industry’s operational report for May 25 showed that power generation dropped to 3,582.5 megawatts, a development which industry operators attributed to the various constraints in the sector.
