Aggreko signed a 12-month lease contract on February 13, 2004 with Philippine state-owned National Power Corporation (NPC) to supply a fully comprehensive power solution including generators, transformers, fuel tanks, and cabling. All equipment and ancillaries were mobilized, installed and commissioned less than 40 days after the contract-signing, in line with the urgent requirements of NPC.

Steve Dunlop, Sales Director for Aggreko said, “This contract is a significant achievement for Aggreko in Asia. This is the first time we have provided a 69kV power package in the Philippines, and it demonstrates our expertise in supplying power solutions designed specifically to customer requirements. Once again, our ability to rapidly mobilize and install multi-megawatt packages anywhere around the globe has played an important part in contract negotiations”.

Electricity demand in the Philippines has grown steadily in recent years and is expected to continue growing throughout the decade. Due to the geography of the Philippines, however, linking the country’s three main islands (Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao) into a single national grid has not yet been achieved.

Panay Island is part of the Visayas Island group in the middle of the Philippine archipelago. Since Panay is located at the tail-end of the Cebu-Negros-Panay Island sub-grid, it has become the most vulnerable to power shortfalls in the Visayas region.

The deployment of the generator set to Panay is expected to improve the reliability of the island’s power supply, and to ease the occurrence of power interruptions in the Visayas region.
