The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) has disclosed that within the last 15 months, it had installed 30 transformers across the country to upgrade its electricity transmission capacity.

The Managing Director of TCN, Mr. Usman Mohammed, made this disclosure recently when the Chairman of the Nigerian Electricity Regulatory Commission (NERC), Prof. James Momoh, inaugurated a new 60 megavolt amp (MVA) transmission transformer at the TCN’s Okpella substation in Edo State.

Mohammed, however said the installation of the new transmission transformer would upgrade the capacity of the Okpella substation by 300%. He explained that with the use of TCN’s engineers and time-compliant contractors, the transmission company has done much more than it did in the last 10 years that it relied on external contractors and engineers to undertake its transmission jobs.
