The National Transmission and Dispatch Company (NTDC) has committed to ensuring uninterrupted electricity distribution across the nation throughout the sacred month of Ramadan

As per the instructions from the Managing Director, Engr. Dr. Rana Abdul Jabbar Khan, the government-supported power transmission company is actively implementing its comprehensive maintenance program for NTDC transmission lines and grid stations. This effort aims to guarantee uninterrupted power delivery throughout the nation.

A spokesperson for the company disclosed that NTDC teams are engaged in a range of tasks including washing, cleaning, and replacing Disc Insulators as part of the maintenance program.

The spokesperson further stated that these efforts would improve the reliability of transmission lines and grid stations, thereby ensuring uninterrupted power supply during Ramadan. Additionally, as part of the program, shutdowns have been planned for 500kV and 220kV transmission line circuits in the southern region.

Throughout these shutdown periods, activities such as cleaning and washing insulators, tightening nuts and bolts on line hardware, and substituting disc insulators with RTV-coated disc insulators on Red, Yellow, and Blue phases were carried out.

The spokesperson reported that a comprehensive maintenance effort was undertaken, which included washing/cleaning 73,493 disc insulators at 459 sites and replacing 9,804 disc insulators at 55 locations. Moreover, over 688 braces and 570 nuts and bolts were installed. Additionally, at 220kV Grid Station Jhampir-1, two damaged disc insulator strings (132kV C.B E5Q1 and E7Q1 C.B Yellow Phase) were replaced, along with two healthy EMCO-Make disc insulator strings of 132kV C.B E7Q1, totaling four strings.
