The Transmission Company of Nigeria TCN has commenced the digitization of old transmission substations in its network.
It aims at improving the automation system of old transmission substations and their connectivity with the proposed TCN SCADA System.
The scope of work for the project includes the supply, installation, configuration, testing, commissioning of Substation Automation Systems as well as the control and relay protection systems in the substations.
This project would further contribute to grid management and reduce system losses.
The digitization project is funded by the World Bank under Nigerian Electricity Transmission Project, and managed by the Project Management Unit of TCN.
In Port-Harcourt Region, five substations would be digitized, namely: Afam 1, Ahoada, Yenegoa, Owerri, and Uyo substations.
A team from TCN-PMU and the General Manager (Transmission) Port-Harcourt Region, formally handed the duly executed document on the digitization project to the contractor at the Afam 1 substation, marking the beginning of the digitization process for TCN’s old substations.
