Napocor assures no 10-month brownout in Oriental Mindoro


The National Power Corp. (NPC) assured no power interruption will plague Oriental Mindoro when the province’s major transmission line undergoes rehabilitation.

Oriental Mindoro Electric Cooperative Inc. (ORMECO) will shutdown its 69-kV Calapan-Puerto Galera transmission line for 10 months to give way for its rehabilitation.

“Napocor, along with its contractor, is currently doing rehabilitation works for the 41 km Calapan to Puerto Galera transmission line in Oriental Mindoro to improve its reliability and efficiency. In order to complete the works, we have to shut down the transmission line,” explained Engr. Maximo delos Reyes, Napocor’s chief for Mindoro-Romblon Operations Division.

To continue power services to its member consumers, the electric coop asked its new power provider Mindoro Grid Corp. (MGC) to install 6-MW generating sets before shutting down the transmission line.

However, some unforeseen circumstances met MGC that delayed the transfer.

“We hope MGC and the local government unit of Puerto Galera can expedite the process so we can proceed with our rehab and be able to return the transmission line in service as soon as possible” Delos Reyes said.

NPC said local media stormed its office in Calapan, Oriental Mindoro to clarify the island’s power situation.
