The Ibadan Electricity Distribution Company (IBEDC) Plc has announced that its transformer maintenance workshop has successfully revitalized no fewer than 54 transformers since its inception.

In a statement released on Monday, Mr Francis Agoha, the Acting Managing Director of the company, said the repair works were carried out through the IBEDC Transformer Maintenance Workshop inaugurated in March 2023.

Agoha said, this initiative has addressed the myriad complaints surrounding faulty transformers that have plunged numerous communities into darkness and adversely affected livelihoods.

He said the workshop, located in Eleyele, Ibadan, stands as a testament to the ingenuity of local talents and the effective utilization of Indigenous resources to mitigate supply downtime, which has severely impacted businesses and communities alike.

Moreover, the repair work’s quality is unparalleled, guaranteeing against failures often experienced with third-party repairs. With the current fluctuations in forex rates driving up the price of new transformers by over 100 per cent, the workshop emerges as a critical component in stabilising the power supply.

Since its inception, the workshop has successfully revitalised over 54 transformers, illuminated several communities and ensured a more stable electricity supply,” Agoha noted.

He said the objective was to bolster the efficiency of its operations and curtail downtime attributable to faulty transformers.

In a bid to further enhance service delivery and ensure proximity and efficiency, IBEDC is actively working on establishing additional transformer maintenance workshops across its franchise. This expansion will facilitate swifter response times and more localized repair services,” he added, urging customers to promptly report transformer faults to their local IBEDC Technical Managers, who will conduct an initial inspection to determine whether workshop-level repairs are necessary.

If required, arrangements will be made to transport the transformer to the workshop for comprehensive servicing,” he explained.
