• NGCP targets to finish transmission lines repair before Christmas


    THE National Grid Corp. of the Philippines (NGCP) is aiming to complete before Christmas the restoration of transmission lines tripped by Typhoon Ruby (Hagupit). The target restoration date was determined after NGCP finished assessing the state of its affected facilities through aerial inspection and foot patrol. “We are targeting completion of restoration activities before Christmas,” said NGCP President and chief executive officer, Henry Sy Jr. To expedite the repair of the transmission lines, 36 groups of linemen—24 from Visayas, six from Mindanao, three from North Luzon, and three from South Luzon—were mobilized to ensure that NGCP complies with the deadline set by the Department of Energy.
