Kaduna Electricity Distribution Company said it had dedicated a 30/40 MVA Power Transformer/Feeder to Cement Company of Northern Nigeria (CCNN) in a bid to improve power supply.
The Distributions Engineer, Sokoto Area Office, Engr. Usman Abba, made this known in an interview in Sokoto.
He said though the transformer had been in existence, the Kaduna Electric only separated it from the township feeder to ensure constant power to the cement company.
He said: “I can confidently tell you that with the separation of the transformer from the township feeder, CCNN will now get constant power supply without any hitches.
“In fact, the feeder was energised yesterday and now is under observation and already picking load gradually.”
He said this was in addition to other facilities provided by the company which included Breaker, CTS, VTS, poles, among others to ensure separation of the transformer from the township feeder.
He noted that in the past, the Cement Company was facing power outage due to overload from the transformer.
Abba emphasised that with this gesture, there would be efficient supply of electricity to the cement company.
“CCNN is our major customer in Sokoto and our target is to ensure that our customers are satisfied through adequate provision of power supply.”
