TransCo Adopts Contingency Measures on felled towers

The National Transmission Corporation (TransCo) has activated a number of contingency measures today, January 25, to normalize power supply in the grid following the reduction of its power transmission capacity to various parts of Mindanao due to three separate bombings of its transmission line towers early morning today.

TransCo line crews have been dispatched to the trouble spots to immediately start repairs on Tower 8 and 9 of the Abaga-Tagoloan line in Balo-i, Lanao del Sur and Tower 50 of the Agus 2-Kibawe line in Brgy. Fatima, Iligan City respectively.

TransCo OIC-Assistant VP Emmanuel Abellanosa said TransCo is dealing with the reduced transmission capacity in accordance with its contingency plan. The recent series of bombings have affected the efficient delivery of electricity to several provinces in Mindanao.

“All remedial measures are being done to restore the affected lines at the earliest time possible,” Abellanosa said.
