The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) said it has successfully restored and energised the second 330KV power transmission line 1 from Jebba to Kainji, and the Ajokuta – Gwagwalada 330kV Double Circuit transmission line 11, The News reports.
A statement by TCN’s General Manger, Public Affairs, Mrs Ndidi Mbah, in Abuja on Saturday said the lines were restored on Oct 2. Mba said the second 330kV Kainji -Jebba line had been unavailable for two years, due to technical problems emanating from the Kainji end of the transmission line.
She explained that the Ajaokuta-Gwagwalada line 11, also experienced transmission challenges because of a cut on a sky wire connected with conductors at towers 338 and 339. She said that the restoration would result in an increased evacuation and transmission flexibility on the Jebba-Kanji line.
