Brownout in Albay could last until June 4—NDRRMC

The National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) estimates that the brownout affecting parts of Albay could last until tomorrow, June 4.

This is according to the official progress report released yesterday regarding the prolonged power outage.

“As per APEC, completion of replacement works for 2 new 10MVA transformers will be on or before 4 June 2014,” the report reads.

Said report also clarified reason for the power service interruption.

“On or before 9:00 AM, 26 May 2014, Albay Power Electric Corporation (APEC) deliberately cut off the power supply feeding Barangay Bitano Substation to perform routine maintenance work.”

“Assessment revealed that necessary spare parts, including a made-to-order specification of a 20MVA transformer in the substation, need to be replaced to resume service.”

“As of 01 June 2014, 11:00 AM, APEC technical repair personnel were able to successfully tap for alternate power sources from unaffected substations, particularly the one located adjacent to Embarcadero Mall, Legazpi City. In addition, some portions of Legazpi City still do not have electric supply due to the problem presently affecting the company for five (5) days.”

The council also specified in said report the actions taken relative to the incident.

It said: “BFP is on CODE YELLOW (Monitoring Alert) Status over affected localities in Albay province and provided safety advisories to the affected households and business industries in the area.

PDRRMC Albay coordinated with Albay Power Electric Corporation (APEC) and other offices on the status of power restoration effort and to expedite the resumption of power supply, provided relevant safety advisories to affected residents through tri-media, secured interruption with other substations to energize portions of affected areas and directly coordinating with the Office of the President, Office of the Executive Secretary and Department of Energy re the assumption of the power supply.”

It added: “APEC provided periodic status update on power restoration efforts undertaken to consumers, affected localities, and agencies.

OCD V coordinated with the APEC, BFP 5, and LDRRMCs on the status of power supply and progress of restoration efforts. [It also conducted] continuous dissemination of safety advisories to affected areas, and [is] continuously monitoring the situation.”—BICOLSTANDARD.COM
