The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) has said that in the next 12 months, Port Harcourt Electricity Distribution Company (PHEDC) will be able to transmit an additional 485 megawatts (MW) to its customers.

A statement signed by TCN’s General Manager, Public Affairs, Ndidi Mbah, said  the company was ‘reconductoring’ the  double-circuit transmission lines in Port Harcourt, Rivers state, to boost supply.

“The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) recently handed over the site for the reconductoring of the 8km Port Harcourt Main-Port Harcourt Town transmission line and the 10km Alaoji-Aba 132kV double circuit transmission lines in its Port Harcourt Region to a contractor for execution,” TCN stated.

It added that the handing over of the site for the project was done by the General Manager, Transmission Services, Mr O.E.A. Ajiboye.

The TCN quoted Adeboye as saying that the project was essential and will increase the line capacity, allowing for the transmission of up to 200MVA (485MW) of bulk power through the Port Harcourt main and Town Transmission Substations to the Port Harcourt Disco.
