All five substations in Liberia have been fully constructed and energized by TRANSCO CLSG. The lastest substation to be added is the Botota Substation. Earlier, the management of TRANSCO CLSG energized the Yekepa, Mount Coffee, Buchanan and Mano substations.
The substations will provide Liberia the opportunity to deliver reliable power supply to communities along the CLSG line and the nearby counties. The Yekepa substation has the capacity to transmit electricity to Nimba, and parts of Bong County, the Buchanan substation will transmit electricity to Grand Bassa, Rivercess, parts of Sinoe, and parts of Margibi counties while the Mount Coffee substation has got the capacity to transmit electricity that can light up the entire Montserrado county.
The Mano substation will transmit electricity to Cape Mount, Gbarpolu, and Bomi counties while the Botota substation will transmit electricity to central, northern, and eastern parts of Liberia. The Botota substation also has the potential to connect with the future St. Paul River hydroelectricity expansion project that is being prepared by the government of Liberia with the support of the World Bank.
The CLSG substation at Botota is situated in the Kokoyah Statutory District, in Bong County. Recently the LEC Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer Hon. Monie Captan described the addition of the Botota SS to the network as a positive step towards improving the lives of those living in the area.
