TCN Engineers Keep N1.040bn for FG from Ilashe Substation Assignment

The in-house-engineers deployed by way of the Transmission Company of Nigeria, TCN, to address the installation of Ilashe Island transmission substation challenge in Lagos State have saved N1.040 billion for the Federal Government in the route of the challenge execution. Vanguard learnt that the mission, a 132kV substation on the island, which was to value the Company a total sum of N1.2 billion, turned into built through the TCN engineers  at a complete fees of N160 million, thereby saving N1.040 billion.
It turned into amassed similarly that contractor who meant to address the undertaking with the settlement sum of N1.2 billion however worried by the outrageous quantity, the control of the TCN, headed by the Managing Director, Mr. Usman Gur Mohammed determined to contain the enterprise’s engineers.

Recall that because inception of the present administration beneath Gur Mohammed in February 2017, the company has engaged the offerings of its engineers, who had been hitherto, laying idle to undertake and finished several jobs for the business enterprise. “In truth, they've performed pretty lots and most of the over sixty eight transformers that have been installed, they did most of them”, stated a employer supply. 

Confirming the development, the General Manager, Public Affairs, TCN, Mrs. Ndidi Mba, while applauding the competence of the employer’s engineers stated they have installed and energised over eight transformers due to the fact the beginning of this year. She said “They have set up 9 transformers in Kaduna Stake”, including, “If you examine the fee of transformer installations, we've got installed 68 transformers, and they are the ones doing them. “Since the existing management of Mr. Usman Gur Mohammed came in, February 2017, they've accomplished quite lots and most of the over sixty eight transformers that have been installed, they did maximum of them.

 “Just only a few have been set up by using contractors. And they have been concerned in plenty engineering works at the substations.  Usually, we settlement the ones things to contractors. Now, most of them have been completed by means of our engineers and they were pretty powerful. “Our engineers have of recent passed through a whole lot of schooling and they have being trained in specific regions. Some of them have been educated on SCADA, others in communications. They have being consistent schooling; a number of them are educated by National Power Training Institute of Nigeria, NAPTIN. Not just training but to satisfy particular education and that has more suitable their potential and they have been very powerful. 

She stated the value of transformer installation has dropped notably which include different engineering upkeep of our device. According to her, “For example, the Ilashe Island transmission substation in Lagos State, the contractor that was supposed to address the mission quoted N1.2 billion as fee of the p assignment,  but whilst we study this, it looks outrageous and we concerned TCN in residence engineers and that they completed the whole substation project with about N160 million.” She brought in 2020, the TCN will retain to push our engineers to steadfastly implement TREP and give them huge training to enable the agency fix its challenges with confined recourse to 1/3 events.
