TCN Restores Second Kainji – Jebba Line

The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) said that it has successfully restored and energized the second 330kV power transmission line 1 from Jebba to Kainji as well as the Ajokuta – Gwagwalada 330kV Double Circuit transmission line 11.

A statement signed by the GM (Public Affairs), Ndidi Mbah, the second 330kV Kainji -Jebba line had been unavailable for two years, due to technical problems while the Ajaokuta-Gwagwalada line 11, was out on account of cut sky wire which tangled with conductors at towers 338 and 339.

How Feasible Is The Meter Bypass Fine By NERC?

With the rectification and energizing of both 33kkV transmission lines, TCN now has transmission line redundancy on both the Jebbi-Kainji and Ajaokuta-Gwagwalada 330kV transmission lines, translating to an increased evacuation and transmission flexibility on the Jebba-Kanji line.

The two restorations have no doubt increased TCN’s transmission capability and a reduction in the interruption of power evacuation and transmission.
