Daily Trust - - BUSINESS - By Si­mon Echewo­fun Sun­day

The Trans­mis­sion Com­pany of Nige­ria (TCN) says it has sus­tained the sup­ply of 30 megawatts (mw) of elec­tric­ity across Jos and its en­vi­rons through an­other trans­former af­ter its twin was burnt last Tues­day.

The Gen­eral Man­ager (Pub­lic Af­fairs), Mrs Ndidi Mbah, in a state­ment yes­ter­day said their engi­neers iso­lated the burn­ing 150MVA, 330/132/33 kilo­volt (kv) trans­former from other en­er­gized parts of the sub­sta­tion, and quickly saved the sec­ond trans­former.

Six hours af­ter the in­ci­dence, the engi­neers re­stored the 330kV Gombe trans­mis­sion line and re-en­er­gized the sec­ond trans­former sup­ply­ing dis­tri­bu­tion load cen­tres in Jos, she said.

“To en­sure there is no im­pact on the power sup­ply to Jos, TCN has suc­cess­fully di­verted the 30mw nor­mally supplied from Jos Sub­sta­tion and Gombe Sub­sta­tion now sup­plies 30mw to Bauchi.
