As part of its plan to enhance the North Luzon transmission corridor, NGCP energized its Santiago-Tuguegarao 230-kilovolt (kV) Transmission Line 2 last September 17.
Running 118 kilometers from Santiago, Isabela, to Tuguegarao, Cagayan Valley, the line reinforces the Luzon’s North Eastern transmission corridor, which is geographically vulnerable to unplanned outages as the area is frequented by typhoons.
Together with the Luzon Substation Expansion Project, which entails the upgrade of various substations in Isabela and Cagayan, the newly energized transmission line is part of the bigger Northern Luzon 230kV Looping project, which seeks to improve the overall reliability of the Luzon transmission network.
The Santiago-Tuguegarao line also complies with the N-1 requirement of the Philippine Grid Code, which calls for the improvement of the grid’s capability to withstand the loss of a major system component with minimal or no disturbance to the entire network.
“Improving the North Luzon transmission corridor is important because we have been seeing a lot of renewable power sources and a steady load growth in the past years. With the line’s energization, we assure a more reliable and better quality of power transmission services for our power consumers in Isabela, Cagayan, Kalinga, Apayao, and the rest of the Luzon grid,” NGCP stated.
NGCP is a Filipino-led, privately owned company in charge of operating, maintaining,and developing the country’s power grid, led by majority shareholders Henry Sy,Jr. and Robert Coyiuto, Jr.###
