IBEDC rehabilitates Sawmill, Agba Dam injection substations in Kwara

Date: 2017-08-18
In a bid to meet customersí demand, the Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company has completed the renovation of Sawmill 3x15MVA, 33/11KV and Agba Dam 2x15MVA,33/11KV Injection Substations in Kwara State.

The upgrade, according to the company, will serve communities such as Oko-Erin, ItaAmodu, Niger, Edun, Balogun Fulani, Ori oko/Ago/Fagba, Taiwo, Osere, Opo-Malu, Sabon line, Okesuna,Basin/Fate area, Sabo oke/Agric, TankeAlakowe, Nupe roadand Ojagboro/Ipata, bringing much needed regular power supply to homes and businesses.

According to the company, the substations received significant repairs, including the purchase and replacement of new 11KV panels, breakers and other structural improvement to the whole network. Before now, the communities being served by the substations, experienced frequent outages due to the inability of the aged switchgear to distribute power effectively.

The Chief Technical Officer of the company, Engr. Ade Ayileka, said: "This renovation work in Kwara State is part of IBEDC's vision to steadily improve the state of its network infrastructure.

"Over N1bn has been earmarked for these projects in 2017, which is being rolled out in phases. We implore our esteemed customers to be patient with us as we are working assiduously to ensure that we cover our entire franchise area in time.

"We have inherited a huge financial burden in upgrade requirements for our network area.

We all need to work together to ensure that our effort in infrastructure development is not short lived due to the greed of a few unscrupulous individuals as it brings huge financial strain on both the company and communities."
