Energy Fiji Limited will soon be replacing two transformers at the Cunningham Road substation and two transformers at the Vuda substation.

The cost of doing this maintenance work is around $36 million and is expected to be completed in the next 5 to 6 months.

EFL CEO, Hasmukh Patel says these four transformers have been in service for about 40 years and these transformers transport hydro power that is generated at the Wailoa and Nadarivatu Power Stations.

Patel says they will transport the two transformers that are currently in Lautoka on Sunday and it will be split in two or three trips and will be done in sections.

The first leg will include from Lautoka City to the Natabua junction and they will keep the transformers at a yard and once the roads are repaired, they will then plan the other trips.

A similar trip is planned for the Cunningham transformers as well.

Patel adds they will have to construct special pads as the transformers are heavy.

He further says they have engaged the services of a haulage company from Auckland.
