Muntinlupa substation

Quezon City, (PNA) - The National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) recently finished the repair of its Muntinlupa Substation to further enhance the reliability of the transmission grid during the 2013 national elections in May.

Last March 19, the Operations and Maintenance group of NGCP completed the replacement of the substation's capacitor bank which was damaged on February 202013.

According to NGCP, the capacitor cells already deteriorated and had been replaced several times in the past due to oil leakage. The project was finished 11 days ahead of the original March 30 target because of the combined efforts of the various technical units of NGCP. The contract cost for the materials of the project is P9.7 million.

"We prioritized this project because Muntinlupa Substation caters to the southern part of Metro Manila and provinces nearby where we have large customers. It is also part of our Luzon Voltage Improvement Project, which helps in our preparation for the upcoming national and local elections," explained NGCP Spokesperson Atty. Cynthia Alabanza.
