Written by thereachfm on March 6, 2019
The Enugu Electricity Distribution PLC (EEDC), has installed and upgraded new injection substations in Imo and Anambra State in a bid to improve power supply in South Eastern part of Nigeria,
Specifically, the projects include the construction of a 1X7.5MVA Injection Substation at ABS, Awka, and upgrading of the 7.5MVA Injection Substation at Agu Awka to a 15MVA; while in Imo State, approval has been obtained for the construction of a new Oguta 33KV line valued at over N140 million which will radiate from Egbu Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN).
The company’s Head of Corporate Communication, Enema Ezeh, said that, the projects were necessitated by the challenges of poor electricity supply within the areas due to over loaded feeders.
Meanwhile in Owerri, work will soon commence on the new Oguta 33KV line which will take care of customers in New Owerri, World Bank, Concord Hotel area, Irete Community and industrialists within the area.
