Fashola commissions Transmission substation in Lagos

Power Generation

In line with the Federal Government’s policy on incremental power to boost electricity supply in Nigeria, the Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Raji Fashola, recently commissioned a 2x60MVA, 132/33KV Transmission Substation at Odogunyan, Lagos State, to boost supply at Ikorodu and its environs.

The Odogunyan substation, which was supposed to have been completed seven years ago for poor funding, the Minister said, is aimed at improving capacity and performance of the Ikeja distribution company (Disco).

The substation, he noted, would release close to 90 megawatts (MW) of power to Ikeja Disco starting from next week, and this would allow optimum function of industries and residents around the community, since they would be catered for from a direct feeder.

This implies that there is enough capacity and redundancy for Ikeja Ddisco to improve the quality, quantity and stabilisation of power to end-users in the area.Fashola revealed that apart from that project, there were 90 others yet to be commissioned, which are at various levels of operations across the country, “so we are forging ahead because we have the momentum.”
