BALANGA CITY—The National Grid Corporation of the Philippines announced it will undertake transmission reinforcement projects in Bataan in anticipation of increased power supply.
New power plants in the province are expected to operate in the next few years.
Fely Francisco, NGCP regional corporate communication officer, announced over 91.1 Sikat FM that the transmission company will implement the Bataan 230-kilovolt Reinforcement Project to accommodate new power generation.
Francisco also said the transmission company will be building 500 kV Castillejos-Hermosa transmission line and the 69-kV Floridablanca-Hermosa line project.
She said the Castillejos-Hermosa transmission line will connect to new power generators in Zambales. On the other hand, the Hermosa-Floridablanca line project will ease the overload in the Hermosa-Guagua line.
Francisco said they are in the pre-construction phase of the three transmission projects that includes getting right of way, permits and other documentation.
She said the transmission projects area will ensure reliable and efficient power supply in Luzon grid.
