TCN moves to restore power supply in Abuja

The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) says it is working to put in place a bypass from the Katampe Substation to the GIS substation in the Central Area of Abuja to restore power supply to the district.

TCN, in a statement, says the current restricted outage situation in parts of Abuja was caused by a truck loaded with gravel that lost control and crashed into the company’s 132kV transmission tower No 20, which supplies bulk electricity to the 100MVA part of the Katampe Substation and 2x 60MVA GIS Central Area Substation.

The statement by the TCN’s General Manager, Public Affairs, Ndidi Mbah said the incident, which occurred at about 2:55 pm on Tuesday, brought down the tower but did not record any loss of life.

“Attempts are being made by TCN engineers to remove the conductors presently lying on the road to ensure ease of movement around the area,” the statement explained.

“Presently TCN engineers are at the site of the incident and are already assessing the level of damage and attempting to put in place remedial installation in the form of a temporary by-pass to restore electricity supply to the affected areas”, the statement reads.

It named the areas affected as Maitama, Wuse, Central Area, and some parts of Garki.

The statement added that efforts were being made to put in place a remedial source of supply, and assured affected customers that the TCN would work round the clock to ensure that restoration is quickly achieved.
