We cannot energize transformer without NEMSA certificate, IBEDC discloses

The management of Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company, IBEDC, has disclosed that a transformer cannot be energized, until the Nigerian Electricity Management Services Agency, NEMSA, issues certificate to that effect.

 

                                                   

Our Energy Correspondent, National, reports that IBEDC Head, Branding and Corporate Communications, Mrs. Angela Olarenwaju, made the clarification in a statement released today, Friday November 1, while reacting to a recent publication over alleged refusal by the company to energize donated transformers.

 

 

According to her, a major procedure is the issuance of a Nigerian Electricity Management Services Agency, NEMSA, certificate, without which no transformer can be energized. 

 

 

"Furthermore, the agency issued a circular in June this year as part of their statutory functions, placing embargo on the energization of 33KV Transformers. IBEDC is a customer-centric organization, poised to keep improving on our service delivery, despite the humongous challenges bedeviling the sector. We do not operate outside and or beyond the stipulated procedure for energizing transformers and as a NERC- regulated and compliant company, we are working within these confines to prevent obvious sanctions," she said.

 

 

According to Olanrewaju, the said transformers are 500KVA, 33/0.415KV donated by Chief Emmanuel Ogunaike, Chairman of FOL-HOPE Limited, a patron of Oke-Omi Community, as part of his Corporate Social Responsibility.
