At1032PM on July 29, NGCP energized its 150MVA Transformer 1 at its OrmocSubstation. The said transformer is now in parallel operations with the 150MVATransformer 2 (energized on July 28) and 150MVA Transformer 3 (energized onJuly 13). This is over and above its earlier July 31 commitment toenergize just 2 transformers.
Transformer 1 was subjected to replacement of earthquake-damaged parts andre-testing before commissioning.
"NGCPis pleased to report that with Transformer 1's energization, Ormoc Substationnow has three online 230-kV /138-kV transformers, with a total maximumtransmission capability of 405MW, in addition to the 40MW being transmittedfrom the Tongonan power plant. NGCP's Ormoc substation is now more than capableof transmitting the entire 349 MW projected maximum load for theearthquake-affected provinces of Leyte, Samar, Bohol, and Biliran. This meansthat, for so long as there is sufficient supply from the power plants in theVisayas grid, there will be no more grid-induced rotating power interruptions.The consecutive energizations are a testament of our frontliners' tirelessdedication to restore all earthquake-damaged facilities," confirmed NGCP.
The last remaining damaged transformer, Transformer 6, is still undergoingtesting and corrective repair, along with the earthquake-damaged High VoltageDirect Current (HVDC) link, whose parts are awaiting replacement.
"With the commitment of our engineers and support staff, we are confidentthat the remaining unrestored facilities will be repaired within or ahead ofour projected timeline. Our customers can be assured that our permanentrestoration works will continue in order to normalize the delivery of power transmissionservices," stated NGCP.
