MANILA --- The National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) continues to strengthen its power transmission network with projects in Leyte to meet the increasing power demand and improve system reliability.

Among its ongoing projects this year is the Visayas Substation Expansion I Project, which includes the installation of a new 100-megavolt ampere (MVA) transformer at Ormoc substation in Leyte.

This transformer is set to be energized in December.

NGCP's projects in the area which are in their pre-construction stage are the: Visayas Substation Reliability Project I, which involves the installation of a new transformer at Maasin substation in Southern Leyte; Ormoc-Babatngon 138-kiloVolt (kV) transmission line project, which involves the construction of a second circuit transmission line and its associated high voltage equipment at the Ormoc and Babatngon substations; and the Ormoc-Maasin 138-kV transmission line project, which covers the stringing of a second circuit, and installation of related equipment at the Ormoc and Maasin substations.

NGCP also implements the rehabilitation of its 69-kV transmission lines in the area. Since last year, a total of 617 wooden transmission poles have been replaced with steel poles.

The rehabilitation is expected to increase line reliability and significantly lessen the probability of line outages, especially during extreme weather conditions.

To ensure continuous power services, NGCP also appeals for public support in the prevention of pilferage, sabotage, grass fires and kite flying near transmission and distribution lines.

NGCP is also investing in transmission projects in the south costing P986 million to improve the reliability of its network.

NGCP is increasing the capacity of its Dasmarinas Extra High Voltage substation to help maintain the provision for N-1 contingency during the maximum dispatch of connected power customers.

N-1 contingency enables the power grid to sustain its integrity in case of a loss of a major component of the system.

The improvement involves the installation of additional capacity both in 500-kiloVolt (kV) and 230-KV substations in Dasmarinas, Cavite.

The capacity expansion is required to maintain the provision of N-I contingency during maximum dispatch of 1,200 MW Ilijan power plant in Batangas as well as 600 MW Quezon Power Plant and 700 MW Pagbilao coal plants in Quezon.

The project is estimated to cost P618 million also involves the installation of 300 megavolt amperes additional capacity to the 230/115-kV power transformer.

The project also involves the replacement of two (2) 500-kV, fifteen (15) 230-kV and two(2) 115-kV power circuit breakers which will increase the reliability of the entire substation.

Work on the project has started and is scheduled to be completed during the first quarter of 2013.

NGCP is also expanding the capacity of its Tayabas Extra High Voltage substation to allow all possible generation dispatch scenarios for the power plants in Quezon and the Bicol region.

The P295 million project is expected to be finished during the last quarter.

The expansion involves the installation of additional 600 megavolt amperes 500/230 kV transformer and the improvement of the 500 KV power circuit breakers and substation accessories control, protection and communication system.

Installation of equipment will ensure efficient, stable and reliable delivery of electrical power to the load center.

The installation of additional capacity in the substation would likewise help maintain the provision for N-1 contingency at the Tayabas EHV Substation.

NGCP is also replacing old power circuit breakers in its substations such as the. Labo Substation in Camarines Norte and Gumaca Substation in Quezon under the company's modernization and replacement project.

The replacement of both the Labo and Gumaca substations -- includes the supply and installation of four and two 230-kV power circuit breakers, respectively, cost P73 million.

The project is expected to be finished in the fourth quarter.

NGCP is a privately owned corporation in charge of operating, maintaining, and developing the country’s power grid. (PNA)
