NGCP has implemented contingency measures to ensure uninterrupted power transmission services in light of the community quarantine in Metro Manila due to COVID-19.
This includes a work-from-home approach for non-essential personnel and a containment strategy for personnel whose functions are indispensable to the seamless operations of the power transmission grid, specifically grid dispatchers, substation operators, engineers, and other critical personnel. Due to this emergency situation, a two-person 24-hour shifting strategy is in place for SCADA personnel, and a 12-hour shifting strategy is implemented for vital teams and other support groups. Transmission projects will continue as scheduled, barring any unforeseen circumstances.
NGCP will continue to monitor the situation and provide updates for any significant development.
