Nigeria - Nigeria Transmission Expansion Program (NTEP-1) - ESMF

20-May-2019

The Federal Government of Nigeria (FGN), through the Transmission Company of Nigeria (TCN) is taking steps to improve the quality and reliability of Electricity supply, while striving to ensure the sustainability of the power sector. TCN intends to increase the wheeling capacity of its network through the expansion of existing substations, construction of additional lines and new substations, and to upgrade existing transmission lines through the replacement of their conductors with higher amperage ones. To achieve this objective, TCN has developed the Transmission Rehabilitation and Expansion Programme (TREP) to be financed by the African Development Bank (AfDB), World Bank (WB), Agence Française de Développement (AFD) and Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA).
