The Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) recently received some transmission equipment spare parts at its Port-Harcourt Regional Office, Rivers State. The spares are for the prompt replacement of faulty parts and for maintenance in TCN substations within the region.

The parts comprise Circuit Breakers, Isolators, Batteries, Battery Chargers, Relays, Lightning Arresters, etcetera. These provide ready maintenance equipment for TCN engineers to respond rapidly to the need to change parts due to fault, in order to ensure minimal equipment downtime and enhance bulk power delivery in substations within the region.
