Eko Electricity Distribution Company (EKEDC) has deployed one of its newly acquired mobile power transformers to Lekki as part of efforts to improve power supply in the area.
The General Manager of EKEDC Corporate Communications, Godwin Idemudia, made this known in a statement on Saturday in Lagos.
He disclosed that the deployment of the 15MVA mobile power transformer would ensure the prompt restoration of power, particularly in the event of a prolonged outage to customers within its network.
“Recall that in December 2019, EKEDC announced that it has taken delivery of its newly acquired 15MVA, 33/11KV Mobile Power Transformers as part of efforts to improve power supply within its distribution network.
“The mobile power transformer will serve as a relief response that will be available to immediately replace faulty and overloaded power transformers.
“Our customers can be assured that power supply within our distribution network will no longer be disrupted as a result of power transformer failure,” Idemudia said.
He disclosed that the 15MVA mobile power transformer would relieve the existing power transformers currently in use within its Lekki coverage network and reduce the load on those transformers to improve supply in the area.
Idemudia added that EKEDC would continue to undertake critical investment to strengthen its distribution infrastructure and expand its capacity to consistently meet its growing supply-demand.
He appealed to customers to support the company’s effort by visiting any of the designated collection offices or make use of its online payment channels for the prompt settlement of their electricity bills.
