Now 10-12 hours load-shedding
Dimapur, July 30 (MExN): The department of Power has informed that load-shedding to the extent of 10-12 hours daily would now be imposed in Dimapur. The department met with all officers based in Dimapur on July 30 to discuss the ongoing power crisis “caused due to the damage of 20 MVA 132/66kV transformer at Nagarjan.”
According to additional chief engineer K Miachieo, an “action plan” was drawn up to transport the “offloaded transformers lying at Kiphire and Mokokchung due to recent up-gradations and install at Nagarjan sub-station to improve the power supply in and around Dimapur.”
A note from the bureaucrat said the arrangement is temporary but likely to take a while. “The department is compelled to impose coordinated load-shedding to the extent of 10-12 hours daily. Consumers are therefore requested to bear with the department for the inconvenience till the transformers are brought and installed at Dimapur,” the department stated.
The department said that the damaged transformer was commissioned during the early 80s. It had “become very old and has outlived its useful life.” To mitigate the problem as a long term plan, the department has already placed order for a 100 MVA 132/66 kV transformer for replacement and upgrade of the old ones at Nagarjan, the note added.
