PHCN Lauds Obi over Improved Power Supply in Anambra


The Power Holding Company of Nigeria (PHCN), Onitsha Works Centre has attributed the new lease of life enjoyed by Anambra people in power supply to the intervention of Anambra State governor Mr. Peter Obi following his request to the Presidency for additional power transmission capacity.
The Assistant General Manager of PHCN IN Onitsha, Engr T.U.J. Emuchay who made this commendation in a letter to the Governor said the people of the state, especially Awka capital city residents were excited at the development following the commissioning of the 40MVA, 132/33KV Mobile Transformer Sub-Station at Agulu Awka.
Emuchay who described the feat as a testimony of the commitment of Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) to lift the state’s economy, said Gov Obi’s request which was in tandem with the TCN Grid Improvement Master Plan had received FG’s approval for the construction of 2x60MVA, 132/33KV Sub-Station at Ogidi/Ogbunike after previously failing to have it installed at GCM Onitsha.
‘These projects are critical which the Anambra State government is championing, especially the GCM power project,’ Emuchay stated.
He however regretted that the execution of the projects had been stalled by difficulty in the acquisition and allocation of land owing to a communal dispute at Ogbunike/Ogidi land.
Speaking on the GCM, 90MVA, 132/33KV Sub-Station for the Harbour Industrial District at Onitsha PHCN said it was being stalled by the non-release of additional land by GCM for expansion.
According to Emuchay the GCM project is packaged to radiate 5N0 33KV out-going feeders to power INTAFACT, Golden Oil and other companies with the Harbour Industrial area.
