KE enhances power distribution network

Staff Reporter

Karachi—The K-Electric continues to streamline and further enhance its power distribution network by installing Aerial Bundled Cables (ABC) under its flagship Community Development Project Ujala in various communities.
A spokesman said on Saturday that the utility has so far transformed different communities through the installation of ABC, new transformers and low-cost connections.
He was of the view that KE has successfully converted more than 104 loss-incurring PMTs on Aerial Bundled Cables (ABC) last week, taking the total tally to more than 800 PMTs and positively impacting the lives of more than 160,000 people.
K-Electric also conducted a massive Kunda-removal drive in Korangi where almost 3,700 KG of illegal wires and kundas (1,800 Connections) were pulled down and confiscated.
This was the first time ever a Kunda drive confiscated illegal wires and cables of this scale. Many Communities in Lines Area, Liaquatabad, Ghazdarabad, Rehmat Chowk, Altaf Town and Keamari, which were previously infested with illegal connections and fault ratio was quite high, are now power theft-free with a minimal fault ratio.
