EKEDC acquires mobile transformers to boost services
EKO Electricity Distribution Company says it has taken delivery of its newly purchased 15MVA 33/11KV Mobile Power Transformers as part of efforts to improve power supply within its network.
EKEDC disclosed this on Friday in a statement signed by its General Manager, Corporate Communication, Mr Godwin Idemudia.
He said the purchase of the transformers would promote uninterrupted power supply in its coverage areas.
He said, “These mobile transformers will immediately replace failed power transformers pending repairs or replacement. Mobile transformers are transformers that can be easily moved from place to place.
“They’re often used in emergency situations or as temporary solutions for the supply of electrical power to areas experiencing power shortage due to failure of the existing power transformer.”
According to Idemudia, the initiative will ensure speedy restoration of power supply, maintenance of uninterrupted power, reduction of load shedding, sustenance of revenue collection, reduction in Aggregate Technical, Commercial and Collection losses and provision of adequate time for repair operations.
“It’s a great way to wrap up 2019 and start a productive 2020,” he added.
Idemudia said injection substations in Victoria Island and Agbara recently suffered acute power loss due to failure of some power transformers, adding that such situations often resulted in massive loss of potential revenue for the customer and the company.
According to him, this is a proof of the company’s commitment to ensuring 100 per cent customer satisfaction through the improvement of services.
He, therefore, urged customers to pay bills on time as the payments “are instrumental to the funding of EKEDC projects.”
The power firm also announced that it had received the award for the company with the most improved Human Resources process through the implementation of the Human Resource Information System.
EKEDC received the recognition at the Chartered Institute of Personnel Management Awards Night on Thursday in Lagos, according to another statement.
The firm said it was commended for its “efforts towards improvement of HR practices and outstanding performance in personnel management in the power sector.”
While thanking the organisers of the award, company’s Chief Human Resources Officer, Aik Alenkhe, lauded the EKEDC team for contributing in no small measure towards the recognition.
