Ikeja Electric says it spent over N150 million to carry out major rehabilitation work at Ogudu Injection Substation to improve power supply in its network, Daily Trust reports.
The company’s Head of Corporate Communications, Felix Ofulue, said the rehabilitation became necessary as a result of frequent breakdown occasioned by obsolete equipment at the injection substation, which most times resulted in serious load shedding and power outages especially across Ojota, Ogudu, Soluyi, Gbagada, Alapere, Oriola and environs.
He further explained that other projects are ongoing at different locations to ensure improved power supply across its network. “We have Ayobo dual 33KV lines, which is expected to improve power supply to Igando, Ijegun and Ikotun and we also have the Abule-Iroko 33KV line, which when completed will also improve power supply to Abule-Egba. All efforts are on top gear to ensure the completion of these projects,” he said.
