TCN sustains 30mw power supply in Jos, others
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.
