THE Enugu Electricity Distribution Company (EEDC) says there will be a five-day planned power outage in some parts of Anambra, beginning from December 2 to December 6.

The Head, Corporate Communications of the company, Mr Emeka Ezeh, disclosed this in a statement issued in Enugu and made available to the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) on Saturday.

Eze stated that “the outage is to enable the Transmission Company of Nigeria engineers to carry out maintenance on their facility.”

According to him, as a result of this planned maintenance, the 60MVA power transformer at the GCM Station will be shut down for the five days the maintenance will last.

He said: “This will mainly affect our customers under Ogbaru District and some under Onitsha District.

“The following feeders will be without supply: Harbour 33KV, Golden Oil 33KV, Dozzy 11KV, BridgeHead 11KV, E-Amobi 33KV and Atani Water Works 11KV.”

Others, he said, would include Premier 11KV, Housing EBH 11KV, Iyiowa 11KV, Wharf 11KV, Fegge 11KV, Uga 11KV, Market 11KV, Bida 11KV, Iweka 11KV and Market 11KV feeders.

“Consequently, all customers fed by these feeders, which include the whole of Atani, Bida, Main Market, Iweka, Fegge and its adjoining estates as well as all our heavy-industrial clusters within Ogbaru, will be out of supply for the period of the outage,” Eze added.

He expressed regrets over the inconveniences the outage would cause its customers.

He, however, assured them that the company would be on standby for supply restoration once the maintenance was completed.

“We are committed to providing you with quality service delivery,” he stated. (NAN)
