Fire guts Abuja power transmission station

A fire gutted the Apo transmission substation in the federal capital territory (FCT), Abuja.

Okay Nigeria understands that the fire began 1.30pm from a transformer in the substation and persisted for some hours on Sunday.

According to a statement made available to Okay Nigeria by Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN), one of the 45MVA 132/33kV power transformers in the substation was consumed by the fire.

“Our technical team is right now working with the TCN engineers to see how to absorb the load on the 45MVA transformer that was affected by the fire.”

TCN also stated that they are still investigating the possibility of transformer protection failure on its 45MVA power transformer.
