The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) has attributed the disruption and subsequent load shedding of electricity supply experienced in some parts of Benin City and environs to maintenance work carried out by the Benin Electricity Distribution Company (BEDC).
In a release signed by the general manager, Public Affairs, Ndidi Mbah, TCN said the disruption which occurred on November 7, 2018 and was caused by BEDC’s maintenance crew while they were clearing shrubs close to the substation where a branch from a tree fell and tripped the primary and secondary breakers of the T21 60MVA, 132/33Kv transformer.
Mbah further stated that bulk power supply to the area has been restored and was on load shedding through a back feed from transformer T24 to bring relief to GRA, Etete, Switch Station, Koko, Ikpoba Dam and Nkpenekpen.
TCN expressed regrets over the situation and reassures customers that normal supply would be restored as soon as TCN engineers rectify the damaged breakers.
