MANILA, Philippines – The National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) announced on Friday, February 7 that it finished energizing the last sub-transmission line damaged by Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan).

The sub-transmission line, known as the Tolosa-Javier 69-kilovolt (kV) line in Leyte, was repaired on February 4. It is now ready to serve the Don Orestes Romualdez Electric Cooperative (DORELCO).

The transmission line is good for looping or redundancy purposes, but it is not yet ready to receive power.

The NGCP added that “distribution utilities and electric cooperatives at the distribution side are continuously restoring power to their respective customers.”

The NGCP reported to the Department of Energy (DOE) that power transmission to the Visayas grid was fully restored on December 23, 2013. Restoration was done using emergency systems and lightweight modular towers that could withstand weather disturbances.

Permanent restoration of backbone structures such as the 134 towers of the Panit-an-Nabas 138-kV line in Capiz and the 72 towers of the Ormoc-Isabel 138-kV line in Leyte will start once detailed designs are finished. –
