TCN says North-East power transmission capacity has increased by 100%

The power transmission capacity in the North-East has increased by 100 per cent, the Transmission Company of Nigeria has said. According to the TCN, the transmission capacity in the region doubled after the recent installation of two 330kV transmission substations in the North-East.

On the transmission capacity in the North-East, he said, “We have concluded and energised two 330kV substations in the North-East, which is a 100 per cent increase on the capacity that is existing in the whole of North-East.”

“The North-East had only two 330kV substations but we have added two, making it 100 per cent increase. However, are we there? No, we are not yet there but we will get there.”

The TCN boss further stated that the transmission company secured different financial support from multilateral agencies in 2018 and that the funds had helped to improve power supply in various locations across the country.
