The Surulere area of Lagos metropolis is set to receive a boost in power supply as Eko Electricity Distribution Company, the distribution company responsible for supply of power in the area has announced plans to build a new distribution injection sub-station of 2 x 2.5MVA bulk transformer capacity in the area.
Disclosing this to newsmen in Lagos was the company’s General Manager, Corporate Communications, Mr. Godwin Idemudia.
According to Mr. Idemudia, the site for the project, located at Mechanic Village, off Randle Avenue, was donated to the company by Lagos State Government through the state Ministry of Transport.
While thanking the state government for the good gesture, Mr. Idemudia said the new power project would lead to a tremendous turnaround in power supply in Surulere and environs as four new 11kv feeders would be created from the new substation.
The four 11kv feeders, he said would relieve some already overloaded feeders that have resulted in power rationing and intermittent outage in the area.
