Meralco’s high-tech substation now online
Manila Electric Co. (Meralco) on Thursday switched on its high-tech substation that is dedicated to the anticipated large demand of locators at Robinsons Land Corp.’s new development, the Bridgetowne IT park and township that straddles the border between Pasig City and Quezon City.
Meralco described the facility as one of the most technologically advanced power infrastructures in the country, having an integrated and fully automated gas-insulated switchgear substation.
The distribution giant said the new Bridgetowne Substation, which had an initial capacity of 83 mega volt-ampere, was designed to operate over modern networking technologies to perform monitoring, metering, real-time protection and control.
“The Bridgetowne substation will definitely improve dependability and reliability of electricity service in the Bridgetowne community and surrounding growth areas,” Meralco senior vice president Ronnie Aperocho said.
