TCN completes construction of 330 kV Kaduna–Jos line in Nigeria

The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN)has completed the final stage of construction of its new 330 kV double-circuit Kaduna–Jos transmission line, to upgrade its capacity to 1,500 MW from the present 500 MW.

The construction work also included the erection of eight triple-circuit towers at the intersection point of the new double-circuit and existing single-circuit 330 kV transmission lines, to enable the stringing of the three 330 kV lines. The high capacity line will ensure system stability and reliability as well as boost power supply and socio-economic activities in Kaduna, Jos and neighbouring areas.
