The operator of the country’s power grid on Thursday said it has “implemented the necessary preparations and precautions” to minimize the impact of tropical storm “Karen” on transmission operations and facilities.
In a press statement, the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) said its preparations include ensuring the reliability of communications equipment, availability of hardware materials and supplies necessary for the repair of damages to facilities.

The power system operator and transmission service provider has also positioned line crews in strategic areas, to facilitate immediate restoration work.
NGCP’s Integrated Disaster Action Plan (IDAP) prescribed these and other procedures to ensure the readiness of all power transmission facilities expected to be affected by the passage of the weather disturbance.
The company said its central command center monitors all power restoration activities, reports and updates from the regional units in North Luzon, South Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao, whichever is directly affected by weather disturbances. RAM/rga
