Ikeja Electric Urges Greater Care Around Electrical Assets

Ikeja Electric Urges Greater Care Around Electrical Assets

Ikeja Electric has once again issued a safety advisory regarding electric assets. The advisory which IE has repeatedly issued calls the attention of the general public to the danger of conducting social activities in close proximity to energized zones and assets.

The renewed call follows an accident which occurred in the late hours of the 31st of December, 2016, when several fireworks were shot in the direction of Mushin II 11kV line at Adedoja junction, Mushin during festive celebrations. The explosive effect of the shots at the line caused the line to snap and drop on a passerby.

Ikeja Electric again wishes to caution residents against unsafe activities around high risk areas of her networks including but not limited to Transformers and underneath power lines and cables. Where any safety hazard is noticed anywhere within the network, residents should immediately contact the Network Safety Monitoring Team via email HSE@ikejaelectric.com or Call 01-7000250, 01-4483900 and 0700-0-2255-43.

Maintain recommended distances from electric assets as follows

33/11KV lines: Minimum 5.5m (or 20 feet) on both sides
132KV lines: Minimum 12.4m (or 30 feet) on both sides
330KV lines: Minimum 25 m (or 60 feet) on both sides.
