TCN delivers 450MVA power transformers to Abia, Kano

The Transmission Company of Nigeria has installed and inaugurated a 300MVA 330/132/33kV power transformer in its Alaoji Transmission Substation in Abia State.
It has also delivered a 150MVA, 330/132/33kV power transformer from the port in Lagos to Kumbotso Transmission Substation in Kano, to replace one of the four 150MVA transformers taken out for repairs.

TCN’s General Manager, Public Affairs, Ndidi Mbah, said that the new 300MVA power transformer, which was energised on February 12, 2019, in the company’s Alaoji substation, had increased the station’s installed capacity from 450MVA to 750MVA, making it the biggest substation in the southern part of Nigeria and made the station consistent with redundancy requirement of N-1.

Mbah noted that with the development, TCN had increased its capacity to supply power to the Enugu Electricity Distribution Company for onward supply to communities in Abia North, including Ohafia, Arochukwu, Item, Abriba.

She said supply had also increased to communities in Imo State such as Okigwe, Arondi-izuogu, as well as parts of Ebonyi and Rivers states.

TCN further stated that some projects under construction would also benefit from the newly energised 300MVA transformer.

It outlined some of the projects to include four 132kV substations at Okigwe in Imo State; Mbalano, Ohafia and Arochukwu in Abia State.
