Residents of Nigeria’s ‘capital Territory, FCT Abuja and it’s environs have been assured stable and unprecedented electricity supply following the recent commissioning of three new 33KV feeders.

They also got an installation of auto reclosers at the Dawaki 2x60MVA, 132/33KV Transmission Station, by Abuja Electricity Distribution Plc, AEDC.

The Abuja Electricity has started the evacuation of the initial load from its facility starting on two feeders.

The constructed 33KV feeders will de-load Gwarinpa and Life Camp 33KV feeders from AT2 Katampe, as well as Dawaki and Bwari 33KV feeders from AT4 Kubwa TS.

The project is meant to  improve power supply availability within Gwarinpa, Dawaki, Katampe, Life Camp, Kubwa, Bwari, and environs.

‘We are thrilled to announce the successful commissioning of our new 33KV feeders, which is a proof of our commitment to meeting the growing electricity needs of our customers,” he stressed.

Mr. Fadeyibi further said that  the two AEDC 33KV feeders commissioned  would evacuate power from the 132/33KV GIS Transmission Station Dawaki as follows:

33kv Feeder H02 will feed Gwarinpa 1st-5th Avenue, Setraco, and Citec Estate, while 33KV Feeder H03 will feed 6th & 7th Avenue, Adkan Estate, and Grand Products in Dawaki. Also covered are Urban Shelter, Charly Boy, News Engineering, and environs.
