Power transmission within Ughelli, Udu, Uvwie, Warri, and its environs in Delta State have been boosted as the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) successfully installed and energised a new 150 Mega Volt Ampere (MVA) 330/132/33kV Interbus transformer (IBTR) at the Delta IV Transmission Substation, Ughelli, Delta.
Mrs. Ndidi Mbah, General Manager, Public Affairs, TCN made this known in a statement obtained by EnergyDay on Wednesday.
”The installation of the new transformer has restored flexibility to the substation by enabling TCN to evacuate power from Transcorp Power Ltd at both 330kV and 132kV voltage levels.
”This means an increase in bulk power transmitted through the substation and improved grid stability, ”she said.
Mbah said that TCN assured Nigerians of its avowed commitment to enhancing bulk power delivery and grid reliability.
She said TCN also pledged that it would continue to execute projects geared towards entrenching a robust transmission grid as cataloged in its Nigerian Electricity Grid Maintenance Expansion and Rehabilitation Programme (NEGMERP)
