MORE Electric and Power Corp., Iloilo City’s electric distribution utility, said Monday it energized the 30/36 MVA New Megaworld Substation at Iloilo Business Park on March 5.

It is the first permanent substation project of MORE Power led by businessman Enrique Razon Jr. since taking over operations in February 2020.

MORE Power president and chief executive Roel Castro said the substation’s completion is a breakthrough for the distribution firm and the city.

“The energization of the substation marks a significant milestone for MORE Power, in fulfilling its mandate of providing reliable and cost-efficient electric power distribution service to Iloilo City. We are fully committed to the upgrading of the power infrastructures here to meet the needs of our customers and support the economic growth of the city,” Castro said.

The substation is equipped with modern machinery and technology, including a digital interface for easy connection to smart grid applications, and an online Dissolved Gas Analyzer for all gases.

It also features a “self-dehydrating breather” and SCADA automation.

The substation’s features include a transformer differential protection system that protects the power transformer from external and internal faults and modernized overcurrent protection relays that are coordinated with other line protection devices for a more robust and reliable supply of power.

The new substation is seen to significantly boost Iloilo city’s power capacity and reliability, making it more attractive to potential investors.  With the completion of the project, MORE Power is confident that it can provide a more stable and reliable power supply to its customers in Iloilo City.

The business park and its surrounding areas will have a more stable and reliable power supply, making it an ideal location for businesses looking to invest in Iloilo city.

MORE Power worked in partnership with Megaworld Corp. which allowed the use of their property as the substation site.  Despite the property’s compact area, MORE Power’s engineers were able to fit everything without sacrificing the substation’s operation, safety and reliability.
