Bayelsa assures residents of uninterrupted power supply by Sept

Simon Utebor, Yenagoa

The Bayelsa State Government has assured residents of 24-hour uninterrupted power supply as from September 2018.

The government, which blamed recent power outage on cable theft and vandalism, also said that all the local government areas in the state had been connected to the national grid.

The Managing Director, Bayelsa Electricity Company, Mr. Olice Kemenanabo, gave the assurance on Friday while showcasing the activities of the Ministry of Power since the inception of the Seriake Dickson’s administration in 2012.

Kemenanabo said efforts were being put in place towards achieving the target, which include upgrading of existing electricity transmission stations from 40 to 90 megawatts as well as ensuring that the second mobile transformer functions optimally.

He said, “We have upgraded the transmission from 40 megawatts to 90 megawatts. We also want to work on the second mobile transformer to make sure that we have a second transmission station that will serve the eastern part of Bayelsa.

“Thereafter, we will then dedicate the supply from the 90MW for the central and western parts of the state. By so doing, the constraints in the sector would be a thing of the past.”

According to him, the mobile transformer will serve as a second transmission station to service the eastern part of the state while the power generated from the 90 megawatts transmission station will be dedicated to cover the central and western parts of Bayelsa.

Kemenanabo also pointed out that the state government had signed an agreement with a private firm in December last year to provide a 5.26 megawatts power plant to boost power supply.

He explained that the power plant was being provided to service communities in the Agbere-Odoni area not only to boost social activities but also for the economic emancipation of the area through the proposed industrial park.
