NGCP Invests In Multi-Million Peso Project To Expand South Luzon Substation
NGCP is investing on a project worth three hundred fifty-five million pesos (P355M) to increase the operational capabilities of its South Luzon Naga Substation.
The project involves the installation of an additional 100-MVA transformer, nine (9) units 230-kV and three (3) units 69-kV Power Circuit Breakers and substation accessories.
The installation of additional equipment is expected to ensure efficient, stable and reliable delivery of electrical power to its load center. Likewise, additional substation capacity will help to avert overloading of the existing transformers.
The project is under NGCP’s Luzon Substation Expansion I, which includes Naga Substation and 6 other substations in North Luzon. The Luzon Substation Expansion Project aims to accommodate load growth and N-1 contingency of various substations. The project components prioritization was based on the latest update on the substation loading forecast.
Naga Substation Expansion Project is scheduled to be completed on the 3rd quarter of 2012.
