BALANGA CITY, Bataan – The National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) will be building two vital transmission projects in Pampanga-Bataan-Zambales area aimed at providing reliable and efficient power supply in Luzon.

The transmission company will be building 500 kV Castillejos-Hermosa transmission line and the 69 kV Floridablanca-Hermosa line project.


“The Castillejos-Hermosa transmission line will cater to new power generators in Zambales. On the other hand, the Hermosa-Floridablanca line project aims to relieve the overloading of the existing Hermosa-Guagua line”, said NGCP Corporate Communication Officer Ernest Vidal during an interview in a local station 98.3 FM Smile Radio in this city.


NGCP has a substation in Barangay Balsik, Hermosa. “We are finished with the documentation, and we are ready to proceed with the building of the 2 transmission projects”, said Fely Francisco, newly assigned NGCP Regional Corporate Communication Officer for the provinces of Bataan, Zambales, Bulacan, and Rizal, during the radio interview.


“Concerned barangays have already issued Certificate of No Objection for the 2 transmission projects”, she added.


Vidal said they are targeting to finish the transmission projects by 2019.
