…Upgrades Egbin 330/132/33kv substation with 60mva 132/33kv power transformer
By Dwelleth Morountodun
The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) on Sunday stated that it has upgraded its Egbin 330/132/33kV transmission substation with the installation of a 60MVA 132/33kV power transformer.
According to the company, the transformer which was installed by TCN in-house engineers was energized at about 13.05 pm on Wednesday last week.
With the new 60MVA power transformer, the substation capacity to supply bulk electricity to Ikeja Electricity Distribution company has increased by 30MVA.
This is because TCN has decommissioned an old 30MVA transformer within the substation, which will be serviced and moved to other areas within its network that has a history of minimal electricity demand.
This substation capacity upgrade will ensure that more power is made available for IKEDC to take to its franchise areas within Ijeda LCDA and Ikorodu Local Government area axis.
Mrs. Ndidi Mbah, GM Corporate/Public Affairs, signed the statement on behalf of the Company.
