Emergency Power Station
Panay Island is one of the islands located in the Visayas Island
group. Situated in the middle of the Philippine archipelago, the
Visayas island group is linked by the Cebu-Negros-Panay sub grid.
Panay Island is located at the tail-end of the grid making it most
vulnerable to power shortfalls in the Visayas region.
The Philippine state-owned National Power Corporation (NPC)
urgently required a temporary power station to
supplement the grid and ease the occurrence of power interruptions
in the region that were affecting an estimated 3.5 million people
in Panay Island.
Baseload Power Station
Aggreko installed and operated a 10 MW/69kV baseload
power station at the Panit-an substation in
the Capiz Province of Panay Island. The power
station included generators,
tanks, and high voltage cabling. All equipment and ancillaries
were mobilised, installed and commissioned less than 40 days after
the contract signing.
Power Station Connected to Substation
The 69kV power station was supplied to allow
direct connection to the Panit-an substation. This arrangement gave
the additional advantages of minimising transmission losses and
improving the voltage stability in the system.
