Mangaluru: Mescom’s transformer maintenance campaign in full flow

Daijiworld Media Network – Mangaluru (MS)

Mangaluru, May 13: Transformer maintenance campaign that is undertaken by the state government is going on at full throttle in the districts of Dakshina Kannada, Udupi and Chikkamagaluru that fall under the limits of Mescom.

This campaign, which is intended at avoiding mishaps during monsoon began on May 5 and will conclude on May 15. All 96,030 transformer of varying capacity are identified for this purpose.

The performance of transformers will increase due to this maintenance and also the quality. This will result in fewer interruptions of power and also prevent any electrical fire mishaps.

Bushes and thorns around the transformers are removed. Correcting the poles that are bent or loosening of wires, checking of busing of HT and LT, grounding of transformers, inspection of lightning arresters, inspection of breezer and radiators, checking for oil leakage, greasing if required are being looked into.

    Irrespective of maintenance/upkeep of MESCOM's infrastructure, one gets an impression that there's no full preparedness in the eventuality of slight rain drizzle 🌧 light winds or even a slight flickering of lightning or thunder. When one of these natural things happen 5he power is plugged off and is on the liberty of the authorities when to restore the power. Goes to show that the preparedness is absent. In Bombay and neighbouring Maharashtra states 70% of the power production and distribution is catered by Maharashtra State Electricity Board (MSEB). This is followed by smaller companies (BEST, BSES) and the ultimate TATA's supplying power to the entire railway network. Likewise MESCOM'S network in Karnataka too should be split to avoid entire resilience, monopoly, entire dependency on power transmission quality just for bureaucracy sake.

    That they do regularly Jossey sir. When people pay so much towards electricity usage....they have to maintain regularly and all the time. Now, why this propaganda ?

    Very hard and risky work, I appreciate their day and night work if there is any problem. But whether they get more incentive for this or benefit for ministers only???

    Feel sad to note that a must do regular preventive maintenance exercise is glorified as new item... It is the fundamental duty of MESCOM for the safety of their equipment and public... Usually these type of entities wake up after the hell is let loose... Until now I have not seen any municipality team engaged in clearing the drains and rain water storm lines of debris and blockages in and around Udupi... Similar situation may be there elsewhere...
