Two hundred megawatts of power has been added to Nigeria’s national grid, the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) has said.
The TCN said this was done under its Transmission Rehabilitation and Expansion Programme (TREP).
A document by the body on Tuesday showed that there was an installation of 100MVA, 60MVA, and 60/66MVA, 132/33kV power transformers in three separate transmission substations.
Similarly, TCN’s General Manager (Public Affairs) Ndidi Mbah, said that the recently-installed transformers in Ejigbo, Bida and Ado Ekiti are part of the projects done in the past one year substations in Nigeria.
“The new 100MVA power transformer in Ejigbo has increased bulk electricity to Ejigbo Substation for Ikeja Electricity Distribution Company (IEDC) to distribute to its customers in Ejigbo, Egbe, Oke-Afa, Shasha, Ikotun, Ijegun, Idimu Town, and Lagos airport,” she added.
