Ikeja Electric now has latitude to evacuate more power and improve supply services to customers after the Transmission Company of Nigeria, TCN completed upgrade of its Egbin 330/132/33kV Transmission Substation.
The work involved the installation of a 60MVA 132/33kV power transformer which was installed by TCN in-house engineers and energized on the 2nd of March 2022.
With the new 60MVA power transformer, the substation capacity to supply bulk electricity to Ikeja Electricity Distribution Company has increased by 30MVA.
This also follows the decommissioning of 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 to the DisCo to take to its franchise areas within Ijeda Local Council Development Area LCDA and Ikorodu Local Government area axis.
