Part of NPC's contingency plan for Election 2016 is the provision of additional capacities in various SPUG areas including Camotes Island of Cebu.
Today, the newly purchased 600 KW Modular GenSet was inaugurated in Camotes Diesel Power Plant plus the recently installed Recloser Unit to prevent total black out and protect the SPUG gen set units from distribution line faults.
Also present in the inauguration were Poro Mayor Boy Rama, CELCO GM Manny Suarez, and NPC SPUG VP Bong Veloso.
Camotes Island is composed of four towns namely San Francisco, Poro, Tudela, and Pilar. Excluding Pilar town which is another island, Camotes is home to some 15,115 households.
Pilar Island of Cebu will now have 24 hours of power supply as NPC led by PGSR formally switched on the new 300kw generating set in Pilar Diesel Power Plant today. She was joined by Mayor Jesus A. Fernandez of Pilar, General Manager Emmanuel Suarez of the Camotes Electric Copperative and SPUG Visayas personnel.
They also inaugurated the plant's new fuel oil storage tanks that will help in ensuring enough fuel supply for the plant.
President Ma. Gladys Cruz-Sta. Rita, Vice PResident for SPUG Edmundo Veloso and SPUG Visayas prepare to set-off to Pilar Island in Camotes Islands, Cebu to formally inaugurate the new 300 KW generating set that will enable the plant's 24 hour operation
"Kung wala ang NPC, wala ako sa estado ng buhay ko ngayon. NPC ang humubog sa akin bilang tao. Blessing ni God na makapasok ako dito, bilang security guard dati hanggang sa nag-aral ako ng abogasya at naging abogado. Hindi ko naisip na magiging Department Manager ako. Ang gusto ko lamang noon ay ang makahanap ng trabaho. Basta ang mahalaga marunong kang magdasal at palagi mong ibigay yung best mo kahit security guard ka pa o department manager ka na, pareho na mabigat ang responsibilidad kaya dapat gampanan ito ng mabuti. At dapat, mahalin at pahalagahan mo yung trabaho mo."
