UPDATE ON THE CONSTRUCTION OF KADUNA – JOS 330KV DOUBLE CIRCUIT TRANSMISSION LINE (200km)
October 24, 2019
The project aims to design, manufacture, supply, erect and commission all equipment and materials and works necessary for the construction of 330KV Double Circuit Transmission Line Kaduna – Jos that is approximately 200km in length from the existing Kaduna 330/132kV Substation to the existing Jos 330/132kV Substation. All design documents have been submitted and approved. The required towers, ACSR bison phase Conductors, GSW, OPGW, insulator strings, and fittings have been procured and delivered to the site. Construction is close to completion as all surveys, soil investigations and bush clearing have been done. A total of 440 towers have been erected already and 445 out of 451 foundations have been completed.
The project at present is slowed down by the demolition of structures along the Row of multi-circuit sections. Once the demolition of structures along the multi-circuit sections is in force, the commencement of the installation of the multi-circuit sections will be implemented.
