Power transmission services in Bohol are now restored after NGCP energized the Ormoc-Maasin 138kV line 2 at 7:31PM on 17 April and the Maasin-Ubay 138kV line linking Leyte to Bohol, at 10:14AM today, 18 April, respectively.

Emergency Restoration Systems (ERS) were installed to bypass towers of the Ormoc-Maasin lines 1 and 2, which were affected by a landslide triggered by the passage of Tropical Storm Agaton. More than 100 linemen and support personnel were deployed and worked through the Holy Week to manually transport the ERS to the restoration area and conduct clearing activities necessary for the installation of the ERS.

The company is currently working towards the restoration of the Ormoc-Maasin 138kV line 1 to further strengthen the reliability of transmission services in the area, as well as planning the permanent restoration of the affected towers.

NGCP assures the public that it is continuously monitoring weather disturbances and is ready to activate its OCMC should there by any threat to its transmission facilities.
