Karachi—K-Electric, after months of planning and execution, has completed the installation of Aerial Bundle Cables (ABC) in Rehmat Chowk, Orangi.
This area was previously infested with Kundas (illegal cables) and was a high-loss area where the fault ratio was significantly high but after the completion of these cables, residents of Rehmat Chowk are now going to enjoy uninterrupted supply of electricity and a minimal fault ratio.
The residents initially protested and created hurdles for the power utility but the management through camps and brochures educated these residents of the advantages this Aerial Bundle Cables system holds.
Spokesperson KE said that this was a High-loss area and due to overloading of PMTs due to illegal theft wires and cables, the residents faced outages and faults on almost a daily basis. These residents were then informed about the benefits of these cables and they openly welcomed our teams for which we are thankful.
K-Electric is continuously executing and installing the Aerial Bundled Cables in different pockets of the city where the theft ratio has been high due to the kunda-system and the power utility plans to complete Aerial Bundle Cables installation in 15 Feeders within the next 3 years.
The power utility’s next ongoing installation is Al Ejaz feeder in the same vicinity which would be completed soon. K-Electric has also targeted a third feeder in Orangi which is again a high-loss feeder, namely Al Shifa, and this would commence after ABC installation on Al Ejaz Feeder.
