Through a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) signed by NGCP’s OIC – President and CEO Mr. Anthony L. Almeda and the Department of Public Works and Highways’ (DPWH) Secretary Mark A. Villar on March 20, NGCP and DPWH forge a partnership to align and expedite current and future projects.
“As both NGCP and DPWH are entities which spearhead nation building and national economic growth through infrastructure projects, it is imperative that we institutionalize our coordination efforts, align, and synchronize our project planning and execution,” stated NGCP. “With the signing of the MOU,transmission projects can co-locate with national highways, bridges, and access road projects of the DPWH,” added the company.
Earlier meetings between the two organizations identified an initial list of 13 projects of DPWH which can be aligned and co-located with NGCP projects. The MOU will also pave way to exploring other possible projects according to the programs of DPWH and NGCP’s Transmission Development Plan.
“Through the efficient and coordinated use of land, resources, and facilities, we will optimize right-of-way acquisition activities and ultimately expedite completion of both transmission backbone and road network projects,” NGCP said.
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.###
