NGCP to complete cable project in 2020

National Grid Corp. of the Philippines is confident of completing its P52-billion Mindanao-Visayas Interconnection Project by 2020 after breaking ground recently on the cable terminal stations in Santander, Cebu, and Dapitan City, Zamboanga del Norte. 

“We are confident that the NGCP team will exhibit the commitment and skills needed to push the project and realize the interconnected transmission network within the committed timeframe,” transmission network operator NGCP said in a statement.

The cable terminal stations serve as the landing points of the two 92-kilometer submarine cables which will carry around 450 megawatts of power from Visayas and Mindanao, and vice versa.

“This is just the first in a long series of small achievements towards the successful completion of this project,” NGCP said. 

The MVIP, provisionally approved by the Energy Regulatory Commission in 2017, is considered the biggest power infrastructure project in the history of the country.
