Ruby-damaged transmission lines restored
MANILA, Philippines – The National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) announced Tuesday, December 23, that it has restored power transmission lines that were destroyed when Typhoon Ruby (Hagupit) made landfall in Eastern Visayas early this month.
As of Monday, December 22, the Borongan-Quinapondan 69-kV line has been restored, the grid operator said.
“It was the last facility NGCP re-energized to fully bring back its power transmission services to distribution utility Eastern Samar Electric Cooperative (ESAMELCO) and the Leyte-Samar area hit by Typhoon Ruby early this month,” NGCP said in a statement.
Some 46 transmission facilities were affected by Ruby in Southern Luzon and Visayas. – Rappler.com
