New 150MVA Interbus Transformer Energised in Ughelli

The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) has successfully installed and energized a new 150MVA 330/132/33kV Interbus Transformer (IBTR) at Delta IV Transmission Substation, Ughelli, Delta State.
This was disclosed by the General Manager in charge of Public Affairs, Ndidi Mbah via a statement made available to the media on Wednesday.
With the loading of the equipment on Monday, the capacity of the substation has been restored by 132MW thereby enabling evacuation/wheeling of more power for the Benin Electricity Distribution Company (BEDC) to offtake from the substation for onward delivery to electricity consumers in Ughelli, Warri, and its environs.
It has also restored flexibility to the substation by enabling TCN to evacuate power from Transcorp Power Limited at both 330kV and 132kV voltage levels. This means an increase in bulk power transmitted through the substation and improved grid stability.
“TCN assures Nigerians of her avowed commitment to enhancing bulk power delivery and grid reliability and pledges that it would continue to execute projects geared towards entrenching a robust transmission grid as catalogued in its Nigerian Electricity Grid Maintenance Expansion and Rehabilitation Programme (NEGMERP)”,Mbah added.
