Power grid operator NGCP has successfully completed the restoration of all lines affected by Tropical Depression Auring, one day ahead of schedule.
Through the combined efforts and hard work of NGCP’s linemen and technical personnel, the last two affected lines, the Placer-Madrid 69kV line and the Placer-Surigao 69kV lines were energized as of 7:37PM. These lines serve the areas covered by Surigao del Norte Electric Cooperative (SURNECO), Siargao Electric Cooperative (SIARELCO), and Surigao del Sur 2 Electric Cooperative (SURSECO II). Transmission services in all affected areas are back to normal operations.
Aside from ensuring the quick restoration of affected lines, NGCP continues to take the necessary precautions to minimize the impact of succeeding disasters on NGCP operations and facilities through its Integrated Disaster Action Plan (IDAP).
