The Enugu Electricity Distribution Company (EEDC) has announced the restoration of electricity supply in various parts of Anambra, according to a statement released by EEDC Spokesman, Mr. Emeka Ezeh, on Wednesday in Enugu.
Ezeh clarified that power supply was resumed on the evening of Tuesday, December 5, following the completion of planned maintenance by the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) at the GCM 132KV/33KV Station, causing a brief period of power outage.
He mentioned that at present, all impacted 33KV feeders are operational, and electricity supply has been fully restored to customers. As a reminder, EEDC had, over the weekend, notified its customers in Anambra of a planned outage designed to facilitate maintenance by TCN engineers on their facility.
This exercise resulted in the shutting down of the 60MVA power transformer at the GCM Station for four days.
Ezeh said: ‘We appreciate our esteemed customers for their patience and understanding during the period of the outage.’
‘We assure our customers of our continued commitment to providing them with quality service.’
This comes after it notified that there will be a five-day planned power outage in some parts of Anambra from December 2 to 6.
Mr Eze stated earlier that ‘the outage is to enable the Transmission Company of Nigeria engineers to carry out maintenance on their facility.’
Mr Eze, had however, assured customers that the company would be on standby for supply restoration once the maintenance was completed.
