Some  electricity  customers  under Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company will suffer electricity supply  interruption as  the  Transmission  Company of Nigeria (TCN) says  one of its 150MVA, 330/132/33kV power transformer in Ayede Substation caught fire in the early hours of Wednesday.

It however says that the fire has been contained and TCN is currently working to isolate the burnt circuits, to enable restoration of bulk supply through the substation.

“This incident would temporarily affect power supply to Ibadan and environs. We therefore appeal to customers in the affected areas to bear with us as we would restore normal supply as soon as our engineers complete the restoration of the cables,” the company states.

Ndidi Mbah,  general  manager, public affairs,  TCN,  in a statement says normal bulk supply would be restored as the substation has enough redundancy to adequately transmit the Disco load requirement.

The head transmission service provider and general manager transmission are already, she says, on their way to Ayede Substation to ensure the situation is properly attended to.
