In a bid to enhance the reliability and efficiency of the power infrastructure in Anambra State, the Enugu Electricity Distribution Company PLC (EEDC) has announced a planned maintenance scheduled to occur from the 2nd to the 6th of December, 2023. This strategic initiative is spearheaded by the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) and is aimed at ensuring the optimal functionality of their facilities.
The focal point of this maintenance operation is the temporary shutdown of the 60MVA power transformer at the GCM station. As a consequence, customers residing in the Ogbaru District and certain areas within the Onitsha District will experience a temporary interruption in their power supply. The affected feeders encompass Harbour 33KV, Golden Oil 33KV, Dozzy 11KV, BridgeHead 11KV, E-Amobi 33KV, Atani Water Works 11KV, Premier 11KV, Housing EBH 11KV, Iyiowa 11KV, Wharf 11KV, Fegge 11KV, Uga 11KV, Market 11KV, Bida 11KV, Iweka 11KV, and Market 11KV feeders.
Residents and businesses in Atani, Bida, Main Market, Iweka, Fegge, and the surrounding areas, including heavy-industrial clusters within Ogbaru, are advised to anticipate a temporary power outage throughout the maintenance period.
Acknowledging the inconvenience this may pose, the EEDC assures customers that a dedicated team will be on standby to promptly restore power supply once the maintenance concludes successfully.
Chika Nwosu, Director of Public Relations at EEDC, emphasized the company’s unwavering commitment to providing top-notch service delivery. The EEDC encourages understanding and cooperation from its valued customers during this essential maintenance phase.
As Anambra State strives for an upgraded and more resilient power infrastructure, such strategic initiatives play a crucial role in ensuring a sustainable and uninterrupted power supply for all.
