Two new transformers installed in Edo and Ogun

The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) has installed two units of 60 MVA 132/33 kV power transformers at Papalanto and Okpella transmission substations in Ogun and Edo states respectfully.

The 60 MVA power transformer installed in Okpella, would greatly support the industrial policy of Edo government, given the existence of huge deposit of limestone and other solid minerals in the area. BUA cement factory at Okpella would also enjoy the improved power supply in the area.

Following the installation of new transformers, capacity of Papalanto substation increased from 75 MVA to 132 MVA, while the capacity of Okpella substation increased from 15 MVA to 75 MVA.
