The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) has officially commissioned a new 100MVA 132/33kV power transformer at its Dan Agundi Transmission Substation in Kano State. The commissioning took place on March 13th, 2024.

The General Manager, Public Affairs, of the transmission company, Ndidi Mbah, in a statement noted that the transformer commissioning significantly boosts the capacity of the Dan Agundi transmission substation by 80MW, providing a vital increase in power supply capability.

Previously, the substation operated three units of 60MVA capacity transformers.

“However, following the unfortunate fire incident that resulted in the damage of one transformer and had partial effects on another, the substation’s capacity was reduced to just one 60MVA transformer. TCN has since initiated efforts to repair the partially affected transformer.

“Amidst challenges in gas supply for power generation, leading to low generation output, load allocation to the Dan Agundi Transmission Substation stands at 30MW”, the TCN’s spokesperson said. TCN Boosts Kano's Dan Agundi 132/33kV Transmission Capability with New 100MVA Power Transformer

TCN emphasised that the remaining 60MVA power transformer in the Dan Agundi Substation can adequately handle the 30MW load allocation to the substation.

“With the new 100MVA power transformer in service, however, the substation now boasts redundancy, ensuring it can accommodate any additional load with ease.
