The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) will commence the installation of a brand new Gas Insulated Substation (GIS) in Gwarimpa, Abuja tomorrow.
This announcement was made by the company’s General Manager ( Public Affairs), Mrs Ndidi Mbah via a statement issued Tuesday.
The installation works which is scheduled to last for two weeks will start Wednesday, 27th of October and will be completed by Tuesday, 9th of November, 2021.
The new 2x60MVA Gas-insulated Substation (GIS) is part of TCN’s efforts to reinforce the high voltage transmission ring project around Abuja, which will increase bulk power available for Abuja Disco to take to its customers in Abuja metropolis and environs.
The company assured that bulk power delivery to the Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC) will not be affected in the course of the 14- day installation work as it has made adequate plans to forestall such occurrence.

TCN promised to continue to execute new transmission projects even as it completes old ones, in line with its electricity grid maintenance, expansion, and rehabilitation program, targeted at putting in place a more stable and efficient network.
