Nigeria: TCN Commissions New 300MVA Power Transformer at Benin Substation

The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) has commissioned a new 300 megavolt-amperes, 330/132/33-kilowatt-hour power transformer at its Benin Transmission Substation in Edo State, Southern Nigeria.

Ndidi Mbah, TCN’s Manager of Public Affairs, announced this in a statement on Wednesday, noting that the facility was commissioned last Thursday.

She explained that the transformers are part of ongoing TCN and World Bank projects aimed at increasing transmission capacity nationwide. The newly commissioned transformer is one of two 300MVA capacity transformers delivered to the substation.

The statement partly read “TCN will commence the immediate installation of the second transformer to further increase redundancy in the substation.”

Nigeria’s electricity generation was said to have increased to 4,800 megawatts in May from 4,200MW due to the completion of the Zungeru hydropower plant, but the government aims to reach 6,000MW by the end of December 2024.
