MANILA, Philippines – The National Grid Corp. of the Philippines (NGCP), has put up an area control center in Iloilo as part of efforts to improve transmission operations.
Serving as a nerve center, the Panay Area Control Center enables the system operator to monitor the grid situation in real-time and under all circumstances, NGCP said.
The new control center inaugurated in October, is located inside NGCP’s Sta. Barbara Substation and houses top-of-the-line system, telecom equipment, and serves as satellite office of the Visayas System Operations.
NGCP president and CEO Henry Sy, Jr. said the move to put up a nerve center is part of efforts to respond to Panay’s growing economy.
“NGCP recognizes Panay’s potential, and NGCP is ready to respond to Panay’s growth, “ Sy said in his message during the center’s inauguration.
“With this facility, our customers are assured of a more secure and efficient monitoring and control system for transmission facilities serving the area, particularly in places of interest for tourists and investors alike,” he said.
