BALANGA CITY—The National Grid Corp. of the Philippines (NGCP) will build two vital transmission projects in the Pampanga-Bataan-Zambales area to provide reliable and efficient power supply in Luzon.
The transmission company will be building the 500-kilovolt Castillejos-Hermosa transmission line and the 69 kV Floridablanca-Hermosa line.
“The Castillejos-Hermosa transmission line will cater to new power generators in Zambales. On the other hand, the Hermosa-Floridablanca line project aims to relieve the overloading of the existing Hermosa-Guagua line,” said NGCP corporate communication officer Ernest Vidal in interview over 98.3 FM Smile Radio in this city.
NGCP has a substation in Barangay Balsik, Hermosa.
“We are finished with the documentation, and we are ready to proceed with the building of the two transmission projects,” said Fely Francisco, newly assigned NGCP Regional corporate communication officer for the provinces of Bataan, Zambales, Bulacan and Rizal.
“Concerned barangays have already issued certificates of no objection for the two transmission projects,” she added.
Vidal said they are set to finish the transmission projects by 2019.
