The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) took delivery of a brand new 300MVA 330/132/33kV power transformer at its Lekki 330/132/33kV Transmission Substation on April 30, 2023, the latest addition of new transformers delivered to the substation. 

Earlier, the substation received two brand new 60/75MVA power transformers in February and three heavy-duty truckloads of transformer components in January, 2023, among others.

TCN Management through its Lagos Region has continued to ensure prompt execution of transmission projects within the Region. 

"This," according to Ndidi Mbah, GM Public Affairs of the TCN in a statement on Friday, 05 May 2023, "entails the upgrade or total overhaul of its equipment where needed to achieve a more effective and efficient bulk transmission of electricity to the distribution load centers of the Ikeja and Eko DisCos and reduce to minimal, downtime that would have resulted from equipment failure."

"The Region equally undertakes the prompt maintenance of equipment to further preserve its lifespan.

"On installation, the 300MVA 330/132/33kV power transformer will add 240MW to the Lekki Substation capacity. 

"Presently, arrangements are being made to put the transformer on the plinth to enable its installation.

Meanwhile, under Lagos Region, several substations and line projects have been completed in the last one year, some of these include:

Reconductoring and commissioning of the New Ikorodu/Shagamu 132kV line
