(Business in Cameroon) - In its 2021 investment plan, electric utility ENEO informs that it will install 30 30-Kv transformers in Dshang, Western Cameroon.
According to ENEO, the transformers will replace the current 15 Kv ones installed in the region. Also, the electric utility will change some equipment on the distribution lines where the new transformers will be installed.
The company explains that this construction is a 2-phase operation. The first phase started on May 2 and will end on May 9 and consists of the installation of 25 new transformers. During the second phase, the remaining five transformers will be installed. The expected impacts are improved quality of the electricity supplied to clients and a reduction of the duration of power outages. Those impacts will be improved further with the implementation of projects that will enhance the performance of SONATREL’s distribution network as well as other actions aimed at stabilizing ENEO’s network.
For the 2021 financial year, ENEO’s investment budget is XAF68 billion. This year, apart from reinforcing its distribution network, the electric utility plans to promote the use of prepaid meters (by installing an additional 200,000 meters), provide secured electricity access to households and companies as well as renovate 25 km of underground cable.
