The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) restored 170MW with completed the reconductoring of its new 130KM 132kV double circuit Sokoto – Birnin Kebbi Transmission Line.

She said the new high capacity 132kV Transmission line, which affects/ transverses 405 towers along the Birnin Kebbi – Sokoto line route, transmits about 170MW, which is more than double the 70MW capacity previously transmitted by the decommissioned old 132kV transmission line.

The new 132kV transmission line, according to her statement, has solved the low voltage and attendant poor power situation that used to be prevalent in the Sokoto axis.

She said as TCN is now enabled to substantially transmit increased bulk power electricity to Kaduna Electricity Distribution Company’s distribution load centers in Sokoto State and environs.

Mbah noted that this also means that Kaduna DisCo would equally be able to deliver more stable and quality power to its customers in that axis.
