Ghana Electric Company to bring improved service to customers

power-transmitting-station22 November 2013, Accra – The Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG), Accra West Region, has embarked on transformer cleaning and maintenance to serve customers better.

The transformers, due to the harsh weather conditions, develop faults, accumulate filth and dust, with weeds and plants growing round them.

Some of the fencing surrounding the transformers over the period have collapsed, posing a threat to human life, especially children.

To rectify these anomalies, the ECG, every three months, awards contracts to interested and qualified companies to clean, maintain and report on the conditions of the transformers.

A staff of Arirochangina Electrical Works and Services explained to The Chronicle that transformer cleaning and maintenance was a quarterly contract published in the dailies and awarded to interested and qualified companies which win bids to render the service.
