25 March 2018, Sweetcrude, Lagos — The Management of Transmission Company of Nigeria, TCN, has said it will carry out an annual maintenance on the Itire 132KV transmission sub-station in Lagos.
A statement released by the company’s General Manager, Public Affairs, Ndidi Mbah on Sunday, disclosed that the maintenance will commence on Tuesday, March 27.
As a result, Mbah said there will be disruption of 34 Megawatts of electricity supply to customers in Ago, Okota, Ilasamaja, Ijesha, Itire and their environs.
According to her, the planned outage will enable its engineers from the Akangba sub-regional office in Surulere to carry out routine maintenance work on all the equipment in its Itire transmission sub-station and 132KV insulated indoor switchyard for improved electricity supply to customers in the above-mentioned areas.
“TCN, therefore, appeal to customers that take supply from distribution load centers covering the areas mentioned above, to bear with us for four hours on Tuesday, March 27th, as they would experience a temporary outage on that day”.
“TCN hereby apologises for inconveniences that may result from the temporary disruption of supply to them and noted that routine maintenance is necessary for the Station to maintain Transmission capacity”.
“TCN promises to continue upgrading and maintaining her equipment to serve Nigerians better in line with the Federal Government’s strategy on incremental power to the citizenry”.
