In a statement signed by Mr Yakubu Dati, General Manager, Corporate Communication of the agency, a new 2.5MVA Transformer will be installed at the airport within the next three days. The airport has recently witnessed interrupted electricity power supply which came to a head two weeks ago when there was total blackout that lasted for more than two hours.
Dati said, â€œNotice is hereby given that installation of dedicated new 2.5MVA Transformer RING MAIN UNIT (RMU) to serve the chillers at the International terminal of the Murtala Muhammed Airport has commenced today, Monday.â€
He said the installation exercise will last for three days. And passengers will experience some inconveniences.
