The company stated that the new 2x60MVA 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.

“During the fourteen-day GIS installation period, bulk power delivery to the Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC) will not be affected as TCN has made adequate plans to ensure that the quantum of power supplied to AEDC is maintained. This means that the installation of TCN’s new GIS substation will not affect bulk supply to Abuja Disco for its customers,” the company said.
