NGCP To Build 3 Transmission Projects In Negros

Edit:admin     Date:09-11-2017

National Grid Corp. of the Philippines, operator of the power grids, will build three projects to resolve the transmission line constraints in Negros Island, with the entry of more than 316 megawatts of solar capacity.

National Grid spokesman Cynthia Perez-Albanza told reporters the grid improvement timeline could not cope with the fast construction of the solar plants, “causing constraints of existing transmission facilities.”

She said the intermittency of solar plants resulted in voltages and frequency fluctuations in Negros, thus requiring the need to invest in additional transmission facilities.

The three transmission projects include phase one of the Cebu-Negros-Panay transmission project, which consists of the Negros-Panay submarine cable project and transmission line from from EB Magalona to Bacolod.

The second phase of CNP project involves the Magdugo-Cebu transmission line while the third phase includes the Cebu-Negros submarine and transmission line. The three projects are expected to be completed by 2019.
