The Transmission Company of Nigeria, (TCN) has delivered a 150MVA, 330/132/33kV power transformer to Kumbotso Transmission Substation in Kano, to replace one of the four 150MVA transformers taken out for repairs. The power transmission equipment arrived Kumbtso Transmission Substation Kano on February 15, 2019, from the Apapa Port in Lagos
According to the General Manager, Public Affairs, Ndidi Mbah, the new transformer is an addition to the recently repaired 150MVA power transformer which got burnt five (5) years ago in Kumbotso Substation. It is noteworthy that it is the first time a badly damaged150MVA was repaired in the history of Nigeria’s power sector.
She further stated that as soon as the installation of the new 1X150MVA transformer is completed, the capacity of Kumbotso would be increased and this will further improve bulk power supply for onward delivery to Dakata, Wudil and Dan Agundi in Kano, Dutse and Hadeja in Jigawa State, Azare in Bauchi State, Katsina, Kankia, and Daura in Katsina and finally to Maradi and Gazawa in Niger Republic respectively.
TCN reiterates its resolve to consistently contribute its quota in the power supply value chain by persistently upgrading and investing in the nation’s grid network in line with its carefully researched and documented Transmission Rehabilitation and Expansion Programme. The company further pledged to continue to work towards building a national grid that is comparable to any in the world
