The Congo Electric Power Company (E2C), the Congo-Brazzaville National Electric Company has set up a vehicle for locating Underground faults. The equipment will allow it to detect, with great precision, the defects of medium and low voltage underground cables before starting repair work. The supplier of the vehicle, the company Megger will also provide training for employees of the company for its use.
This new tool will modernize and accelerate the company’s underground cable repair processes. “It was found that the response time to a failure situation was long. Regarding some underground failures, we needed a whole day to look for them and detect them. This vehicle has several advantages. Even under the weather, agents can do a good research and study to locate the real source of the problem, ” said Jules Souka, the director of the E2C.
It was acquired under the Water, Electricity and Urban Development Project implemented by the company and financed with support from the World Bank. The objective of this project is to sustainably increase access to energy and drinking water in certain targeted areas in Brazzaville and Pointe-Noire.
