NGCP prepares for TS 'Amang'



Power system operator and transmission service provider NGCP has implemented the necessary preparations and precautions to minimize the impact of Tropical Storm 'Amang' on transmission operations and facilities.

Preparations included ensuring the reliability of communications equipment, availability of hardware materials and supplies necessary for the repair of damages to facilities, as well as the positioning of line crews in strategic areas, to facilitate immediate restoration work.

NGCP’s Integrated Disaster Action Plan (IDAP) prescribes these and other procedures to ensure the readiness of all power transmission facilities expected to be affected by the passage of the weather disturbance.

Tropical Storm 'Amang', carrying maximum sustained winds of 75kph and moving west at a speed of 19kph, was estimated based on all available data at 560 km East of Borongan City, Eastern Samar.

NGCP’s Overall Disaster Command Center has been activated to monitor the status of transmission facilities as well as coordinate power restoration activities, reports, and updates from the Regional Command Centers in North Luzon, South Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao, whichever is directly affected by the weather disturbance.
