The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN), said it has successfully completed another new 2x40MVA 132/33kV transmission substation project in Yauri, Kebbi State. The substation project would be officially commissioned by the Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Raji Fashola, SAN.

According to the Company, one of the transformers has been energized while the second one would soon be energized as soon as the final pre-commissioning issues have been completely dealt with, noting further that when it took over the Yauri substation project, installations were only about 50% complete and three months down the line, the project has successfully been completed and one transformer energized.

According to the General Manager, Public Affairs, Ndidi Mbah, the Yauri Substation project is just one of the many contracts that were taken over by TCN from contractors and completed by its in-house engineers. The new Yauri 2x40MVA 330/33kV Transmission Substation was first awarded in December, 2007 but the contractor failed persistently to complete the contract for 11years. Consequently, TCN took over the project in the month of May 2018 and has completed it.

The Yauri Transmission Substation project has increased the quantum of bulk electricity supply to Kano Electricity Distribution Company load feeders for onward delivery to electricity customers in Yauri, Zuru, Koko, Shanga and Wara in Kebbi State. Other areas that would also benefit include Ibeto, Nasko, and Salka in Niger State.

This new 80MVA capacity substation the Company said, is one out of the several transmission substation projects the current Management had taken over from contractors who have shown lack of capacity to complete, that had been completed by TCN. Others it said include Damaturu, Kwukwaba, Wudil, and Mayo Belwa Substations
