Aug 7, 2017

GE (NYSE: GE) announced its partnership with the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) for the new 500kV transmission line project and substation located in Hermosa, Bataan.

"NGCP supports the government's goal of providing access to electricity to every corner of the country. The Hermosa substation project is in line with the Department of Energy's strategic directions 2017-2040, which is to expand energy access to ensure affordable, reliable, sustainable, and modern energy supply for all," stated NGCP.

The project is crucial in accommodating generation capacity additions in the Bataan and Zambales areas. The new Hermosa substation serves as a merging point of power, with an aggregate dependable capacity of about 4,000 MW. The development of a new 500 kV transmission backbone will serve as the additional outgoing circuits from Hermosa to San Jose to allow simultaneous maximum dispatch of existing power plants. NGCP's existing San Jose 500 kV Gas Insulated Switchgear Substation is currently the only connection point from power plants in North Luzon to its delivery points in Metro Manila down to South Luzon.
