The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) claims it has restored a damaged piece of one of the 132 KV Katampe–Central region underground transmission cables that was wrecked by the IBB Golf Club over two years ago.
“The delay in the repair was due to the lack of cable repair kit and expertise required to undertake the repair work in the country as well as the COVID-19 pandemic,” according to TCN’s General Manager, Public Affairs, Ndidi Mbah.
Mrs Mbah stated in an Abuja statement on Wednesday that on December 23, 2019, an excavating equipment working for the Golf Club destroyed a piece of the underground transmission cable line – 1 that goes through the Golf Club.
The Katampe-Central Area 132KV transmission line – 1 provides electricity to the Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC) for critical sites like as the Central Area Business District, the 3 Arm-Zone, the SSS Headquarters, the NNPC Headquarters, the Federal Secretariat, and the surrounding districts.
According to Mrs Mbah, repair work was finished and the cable was turned on at around 3.09 p.m. on November 1.
“Following the successful restoration of the 132KV underground transmission cable line – 1, TCN now has bulk transmission line redundancy (N-1). This implies that if there is a sudden failure of one line, the second will be available,” she said.
Mrs Mbah said that with the repair and energising of the second underground cable line – 1, this means that TCN can now supply more bulk power to the AEDC.
