At 6:51AM, 31 December 2016, NGCP energized its Naga-Daraga 230kV line, giving power to the provinces of Albay and Sorsogon affected by Typhoon #NinaPH.
NGCP earlier promised to complete all Typhoon #NinaPH restoration works on 31 December 2016 and has dispatched around 500 personnel from North and South Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao to repair the damaged lines.
"Our people have been working round the clock since the storm hit. Many of them spent Christmas Day working in the field or at our control centers, away from their families just so that we could keep our promise of energizing our facilities before the new year comes in," the company said. "We will continue to work non-stop, and through New Year's Day if necessary, to make sure transmission services are returned to normal at the soonest possible time."
The corporation is also continuously taking necessary preparations and precautions to minimize the impact of succeeding typhoons and disasters on NGCP operations and facilities. ###
