As part of its disaster response efforts, Meralco recently assisted Cabanatuan Electric Corporation (CELCOR) in rehabilitating 35 poles brought down by Typhoon Maring in the city. The affected poles make up their 9 kilometer 69kV subtransmission line. Restoration of this is very crucial to CELCOR’s operations as it serves as their main supply line from the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) Cabanatuan Substation to their distribution system.
The Meralco contingent made up of 69 crew linemen from Meralco Pasig, Sta. Rosa, Alabang and Valenzuela Sectors as well as Sub-Transmission Lines – Central, Sub-Transmission Lines – North, North Distribution Services (NDS) – Contract Administration, NDS – Logistics – TWE, TWE – Valenzuela Sector and contractors ELCOR, CRB and Power Line.
