EEDC inaugurates 1×7.5 MVA sub-station in Enugu



Enugu Electricity Distribution Company (EEDC) yesterday inaugurated a multimillion naira 1×7.5 MVA Nike Lake injection sub-station in Abakpa, Enugu East Local Government Area of Enugu State.

Speaking during the inauguration ceremony, EEDC Managing Director, Mr. Okechukwu Nwosu, said the distribution company, as a responsible corporate organisation, was determined to ensure that the South East, which was her franchise area, was not left out in the conscious effort at transforming the socio-economic landscape of the zone, stressing that electricity was central to the socio-economic development of the nation.

“The sub-station that is being commissioned today is housing 3 units of 11KV feeders and was designed to enhance the quality of electricity supply to our customers within Nike Lake Resort and environs, Amorji, Ibagwa, Harmony, Edem, Alulu, Umuchigbo, down to Last Bus-Stop.

“This initiative has de-loaded the Abakpa 1 – 11KV feeder, which prior to now, was serving these areas and other parts of Abakpa and Thinkers Corner, Emene. We are therefore happy to say that approximately 13,000 EEDC customers are already benefiting from this project,” he said.
The managing-director noted that in the company’s effort to maintain and expand her network, it had deployed over 70 units of 500KV transformers to replace some failed ones and also to serve as relief to some areas identified to be expanding within her network, appealing to the people to secure the installations to avoid vandalism.
