2018 summer season closes with reliable transmission services

Date Published: 6/19/2018 3:00:00 PM

Thanks to the implementation of NGCP’s comprehensive grid enhancement program, NGCP’s transmission lines and facilities sustained its reliability, reporting no major transmission-related issues for the duration of the summer period.

At 1:53PM of May 28, 2018, the highest peak load demand of 10,876 Megawatts (MW) was recorded for the Luzon grid, breaching this year’s peak demand forecast of 10,561MW set by the Department of Energy’s Power Development Plan. Nonetheless, anticipating the yearly increase in demand especially in the country’s capital load center, NGCP already made preparations to ensure continuous supply of power.

Last January, NGCP retained its commitment to deliver reliable power transmission services amidst the peak demand forecast and the projected power constraints in the summer season due to rising temperatures.

“We are pleased to report that despite the load for the Luzon grid steadily increasing year on year, NGCP has always been one step ahead of the trend,” stated the company. “Our grid operations and maintenance plan, along with our blackout drill and generator’s conference, are important tools in our preparedness for the peak load months not only for Luzon, but also for Visayas and Mindanao during the year’s end,” added the company.

NGCP also attributes the successful management of power transmission services to its timely implementation of transmission projects and major improvements in the Luzon grid, which includes the Santiago-Tuguegarao 230 kilo-Volt (kV) transmission line, the relocation of towers of the San Esteban-Laoag 230kV line, the Eastern Albay 69kV line, and various substation upgrading projects.

The company adds that NGCP will continue to provide reliable power transmission services through the proper execution of its mandate to excellently operate, efficiently maintain, and continuously expand the country’s transmission network.

NGCP’s critical projects, such as the Mindanao-Visayas Interconnection Project, the Cebu-Negros-Panay Interconnection Project, and various 500kV transmission line projects in Luzon are key factors in the improvement of the country’s transmission highway.

“Every year, we see an aggressive rise in load growth, which means our country is developing in such a fast pace.The continuous support of energy stakeholders, local government units, and the public is the most crucial aspect of the planning and execution of all our activities, and with combined efforts, we will be able to fulfill our mandate and ultimately bridge power and the progress of the nation,” said NGCP.

NGCP is a Filipino-led, privately owned company in charge of operating, maintaining,and developing the country’s power grid, led by majority shareholders Henry Sy, Jr. and Robert Coyiuto, Jr.###
