..... As TCN Plans Outage On Benin-Delta and Delta-Oghara 132kva Double Circuit Lines At Amukpe Transmission Substation

..... Set To Erect Two (2) Number 132kV Transmission Towers At Its Amukpe Transmission Substation.

The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN), in order to serve its consumers better, has commenced the erection of two (2) number 132kV transmission towers at its Amukpe Transmission Substation.

This, according to Ndidi Mbah (Mrs), General Manager, Public Affairs of TCN, in a statement made available to journalists in Abuja, "will equally restring a portion of the Benin-Delta and Delta-Oghara 132kV double circuit transmission lines, from Saturday, May 4th to 17th, 2024."

"Consequently, Amukpe Substation will be out for the duration of the work." The statement read.

"Also, bulk power supply to Benin DisCo through the following feeders: the  ADEJE, INDUSTRIAL, WOODLAND, MOSOGAR, SAPELE (SAPELE) and ABRAKA feeders will be out of bulk power supply for the period."

"The outage is necessary to create a safe working environment for the contractor. Completion, of the projects will put in place N-1 redundancy that would enable TCN supply bulk electricity to the substation from either the Benin or Ughelli transmission line.

"This means that when one transmission line is faulty, bulk electricity can still be received in the substation from the second line.

"TCN apologises for the inconveniences  electricity consumers supplied from the substation will experience within the period, but notes that the projects will help ensure a more flexible and consistent bulk power supply through the Amukpe Transmission Substation." The statement concluded.
