BRIEF - Lekki, Sangotedo to experience 12-hour power outage as TCN begins maintenance
The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) says it will carry out 12-hour maintenance work in Aja Substation from
Wednesday to Thursday.
In a statement on Tuesday, Ndidi Mbah, TCN’s spokesperson, said the maintenance work would be done between 7 am to 7 pm daily.
TCN added it would lead to an outage in Badare Sangotedo, Jakande, Chevron, Agungi, Lekki and some parts of Victoria Island.
It said the rejig includes the “relocation of Egbin/Aja 330kV Line 3 to a spare Omotosho 330kV Line 2 bay as well as the repair of gas leakage on one of the isolators in the substation”.
“ During this period, Aja, Lekki Transmission Stations and the Alagbon/Aja 330kV transmission Line would be out of service, to ensure safe workspace for the engineers,” the transmission company said.
“Similarly, the Alagbon Transmission Substation would receive power supply through the Ijora/Alagbon 132kV transmission line.
“The maintenance work will affect bulk power supply and expectedly cause an outage in Sangotedo, Jakande, Chevron, Agungi, Lekki and some parts of Victoria Island.
TCN regrets any inconveniences this may cause electricity consumers within the affected areas and assure Nigerians of its determination to continue to deliver bulk power supply to distribution load centres nationwide.”
