  • Ikeja DisCo Begins Load-shedding as TCN Upgrades Facility

Some customers under Ikeja Electric’s network will experience massive load-shedding in the next five weeks as Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) upgrades some of its facilities, TBI Africa has learnt.

The Chief Technical Coordinator of Ikeja Electric, Mr. Sunday Oyewole, told reporters that the TCN had announced plans to upgrade TI Ejigbo power transformer and T3 Alimosho power transformer from 30mva to 100mva.

The upgrade began on Monday, and would last for five weeks, during which some customers of Ikeja Electric Plc would experience increased load-shedding activity.

“Details of the project plan indicate that TCN, in order to minimise impact on communities, will effect the upgrade one after the other, upgrading T1 Ejigbo first before work on T3 commences,” Oyewole said.

Areas that will be affected include Oke-Afa, Shasha and its environs as well as Ipaja.

Oyewole said the company would use all channels to mitigate the impact of the upgrade on customers.
