In a bid to improve electricity supply in Nasarawa State and its environs, the Abuja Electricity Distribution Company (AEDC) says  it has committed N1.04 billion to the completion of several power evacuation projects.
When completed, they will evacuate power from two new 150MVA 330/132 kilovolts (kV) and two other 60MVA 132/33KV transmission substations at Akurba being built by the Niger Delta Power Holding Company (NDPHC).
NDPHC is intervening to step down bulk power for the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) from the 330KV Ikot-Ekpene-Ugwuaji-Apir-Jos transmission line.
Speaking during an inspection of the projects, the Managing Director of AEDC, Engr. Ernest Mupwaya, said the company was preparing its various networks to evacuate more power from the substations when completed before March.
“The TCN project will provide a massive boost in power supply potentials to Nasarawa State up to southern Kaduna and even parts of Plateau State.
 “There will be more hours of electricity available on the network and a significant improvement in the voltage profile of the state.
We are putting all efforts at ensuring the project is completed in good time. We will leave no stone unturned,” he said.

 

The evacuation projects include the construction of four 33KV feeders, a new 5MVA injection substation in Lafia, take-off bays for two new 60MVA 132/33KV Akurba Transmission station in Lafia, rehabilitation of existing 33KV and 11KV distribution lines, the relief and upgrading of distribution transformers.

 

Others are the upgrade of two units of 1MVA injection substations to 5.0MVA at Awe and Keana areas, and the upgrade of a 2.5MVA injection substation at Obi to a 5MVA injection substation.

Since the project started in September 2019, over N160 million has been committed to key constructions in the first phase.
On completion, electricity customers in Akwanga and its environs will enjoy power supply directly.
Currently, they split their power supply with Lafia
