Respite for North East States as TCN Confirms Restoration of 330KV Line

The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN), has confirmed the restoration of the Jos-Gombe 330 Kilo Volt (kV) Single Circuit Transmission line, indicating ease to the North East region of Nigeria, which has been ravaged by infrastructure deficit due to years of conflict.

Mrs Ndidi Mbah, TCN’s General Manager, Public Affairs at the company in a statement in Abuja on Wednesday said bulk supply was restored through the line on Tuesday at 9:37 p.m.

She said the line now wheels normal load allocation from the National Control Centre (NCC) to transmission substations in the North East.

The manager said it also wheels distribution load centres for Kano Distribution Company and Jos Distribution Company to off-take and distribute to its customers in the North East franchise states.

”We are thankful for every assistance rendered by the governors in the North East and patience displayed by all the affected electricity consumers.

”Our gratitude also goes to the security operatives who always escorted our contractor and staff to the sites of the incidents, as well as the contractor and TCN engineers,” she said.

She said that TCN is appealing to residents in communities hosting or close to power installations to be vigilant and to report any act or suspicion of vandalism to security operatives.

Mrs Mbah said that this would help the company swiftly arrest the situation, to preserve the power transmission towers and lines nationwide.
