Over 98MW To Be Added To National Grid – TCN

The Transmission Company of Nigeria, TCN, has disclosed plans to add over 98 megawatts to the national grid.

This is coming as TCN energized a new 2X60MVA, 132/33kV Gas Insulated Substation (GIS) at Gwarinpa, Abuja recently.

TCN’s general manager of public affairs, Mrs Ndidi Mbah stated this in a statement released to newsmen on Tuesday.

According to her: “The 132kV transmission substation is one of the five substation projects comprising the Abuja Ring Projects, funded by Agence Francais de Development (AFD). The substation which has six (6) feeders through which bulk electricity is transmitted to Abuja Electricity Distribution Company’s (AEDCs) load centres, receives bulk supply from the Katampe 132kV Transmission line.

The other four substation projects are at various stages of completion. Two would soon be energized while the other two are ongoing. Significantly on completion of the entire project, the FCT and environs would have adequate power supply for the next 50 years.

The Abuja Ring Project is one of the several projects being executed by TCN to further expand the transmission grid. TCN would not rest on its oars but would continue to work towards further expanding the nation’s grid, to put in place a very robust transmission network that would continue to efficiently transmit bulk electricity to Distribution load centres nationwide.
