Transco reports power restoration in Makban-Los Banos line

Manila (5 October) -- The National Transmission Corporation today said that work on the Makban-Los Banos line which serves the UP Los Banos (UPLB) compound, the IRRI complex and adjacent areas will be completed and energized around 4 p.m. today. Local power distribution will follow thereafter.

TransCo said that repair activities on the line’s damaged wooden poles were completed around 2:00 this morning. The attempt to energize it however revealed the presence of line faults caused by trees and storm debris. Pole to pole inspections and accompanying repair works are now being conducted.

The damaged wooden poles of the line are located in a mountainous stretch of the line which emanates from the Makban Geothermal Complex of the National Power Corporation, crosses the slopes of Mount Makiling, and ends at the Los Banos substation inside the UPLB compound.

Transco said it has already notified officials of UPLB and IRRI regarding the status of repair works.

Meanwhile, the Dasmarinas-Rosario line which serves the town of General Trias and the Cavite Economic Zone is expected to be energized around 6 p.m. today.

Over 250 TransCo line personnel have been working around the clock on the line to repair or replace over 57 wooden poles which were either broken, toppled, or left leaning by Typhoon Milenyo.

The damaged poles are located in muddy rice fields not accessible to heavy equipment. TransCo has thus resorted to using its helicopter to lift and erect new transmission line poles in order to hasten the power restoration process. (PIA-MMIO) [top]
