TCN Boosts Capacity In Lagos, Takes Delivery Of 300MVA Transformer


The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) took delivery of a brand new 300MVA 330/132/33kV power transformer at its Lekki 330/132/33kV Transmission Substation on April 30, 2023, the latest addition of new transformers delivered to the substation.

TCN’s General Manager, Public Affairs, Ndidi Mbah disclosed the development in a statement on Friday.

According to the statement, the substation received two brand new 60/75MVA power transformers in February and three heavy-duty truckloads of transformer components in January, 2023, among others.

TCN Management through its Lagos Region has continued to ensure prompt execution of transmission projects within the Region. This entails the upgrade or total overhaul of its equipment where needed to achieve a more effective and efficient bulk transmission of electricity to the distribution load centers of the Ikeja and Eko DisCos and reduce to minimal, downtime that would have resulted from equipment failure. The Region equally undertakes the prompt maintenance of equipment to further preserve its lifespan.

On installation, TCN said, the 300MVA 330/132/33kV power transformer would add 240MW to the Lekki Substation capacity. Presently, arrangements are being made to put the transformer on the plinth to enable its installation.

Meanwhile, under Lagos Region, several substations and line projects have been completed in the last one year, some of these include:

 Reconductoring and commissioning of the New Ikorodu/Shagamu 132kV line
 Installation of 1x60MVA transformer at Egbin 132kV Substation
