At an effort to increase the availability of electricity, the Federal Government of Nigeria has announced that it has received delivery of seven new power transformers for the 330/132kV transmission substation at Akangba.

This was revealed in a statement released on Thursday by Transmission Company of Nigeria’s General Manager of Public Affairs, Ndidi Mbah.

TCN states that the transformers are a component of the ongoing TCN/World Bank Power projects and have a voltage range of 60 megavolt-amperes to 100MVA.

As a result, the beneficiary substations include Amuwo, Akoka, Itire, and Alausa in Lagos State.

At the Akangba 330/132kV Transmission Substation, seven brand-new power transformers with capacities ranging from 60MVA to 100MVA together with their accessories were just delivered.

The transformers are a component of the ongoing TCN/World Bank power projects, and they will be supplied to the transmission substations in Alausa, Akoka, Maryland, Itire, and Amuwo. The transmission substations in these locations are each 132/33kV.

“While the above-listed substations will receive one transfer each, the Akoko 132/33kV Substation and Amuwo 132/33kV Substation will receive two transformers each.

“When installed, the transformers substantially increase the company’s transmission capacity”.

The Nigeria Electricity Transmission Project (NETAP), which began in 2017 and is projected to cost $3.630 million, is the framework within which the TCN/World Bank Project is planned to address the nation’s power supply issues.
