NGCP Visayas Power Restoration Advisory as of 3:00PM, 14 July 2017
Date Published: 7/14/2017 5:00:00 PM
NGCP energized the Ormoc-Babatngon 138kV line at 11:45PM of July 13, the Babatngon-Abucay-Palo 69kV at 12:04AM of July 14 and the Ormoc-Maasin 138kV line at 12:37AM of July 14, which supply power to the island of Leyte.
As of 3PM, the grid is receiving 56MW from Cebu and EDCís power plants, with the following allocations: 36MW for Leyte and Southern Leyte, 14MW for Samar and Eastern Samar, and 6MW for Bohol.
Power services in the affected areas are still subject to availability of supply, and the whole Visayas Grid may experience rotating power interruptions until power supply stabilizes.
NGCP will also replace the damaged transformers in Ormoc S/S with transformers from Compostela, Cebu and expects to complete the replacement on July 31.
Even with the energization of its lines and with partial restoration of power, NGCP will still work to simultaneously repair and replace damaged facilities in order to permanently restore power transmission services in the affected provinces. ###
