PIA Press Release

TransCo restores Pulangi-Tagoloan line in Mindanao

Manila (6 November) -- The National Transmission Corporation (TransCo) announced that it has re-energized both lines of the Pulangi-Tagoloan 138-kV transmission line which was bombed by lawless elements early Saturday morning on November 1 and damaged steel towers #222 and #231 in Maramag, Bukidnon.

The blasts toppled tower #222 but the other tower remained upright despite damages on its tower legs.

TransCo Assistant VP for Mindanao Emmanuel D. Abellanosa said TransCo's line crews and technical personnel erected emergency restoration system (ERS) structures and energized the first line of the affected structures on November 3 at 9:30 a.m.

With the re-energization of the second line on November 5 at 2:15 p.m., the transmission constraint in the Mindanao grid has now been relieved.

Abellanosa added that contingency measures to address the situation have been put in place.

"We are employing measures to maintain the stability and reliability of the grid. If these destructive and criminal acts continue, we are prepared to mitigate a possible prolonged power interruption," he said.

TransCo is in constant close coordination with police and military officials in Mindanao to reinforce security measures along the transmission lines. Barangay residents are also being tapped to help in the efforts to prevent attacks by reporting movements of suspicious groups. (PIA-MMIO) [top]
