DOE Closely Monitors Effect of Typhoon Nina on Energy Assets

Wazzup Pilipinas!

As Typhoon Nina intensifies, the Department of Energy (DOE), its attached and partner agencies are ready to take action in the affected areas to ensure continuous energy supply and safety of the people.

Energy Secretary Alfonso G. Cusi said, “The energy family is ready to implement contingency measures for the Typhoon Nina, and we are closely monitoring every development to give timely advice to affected areas and protect them from any harm.”

As of 3:00 p.m. yesterday (24 Dec.), weather bureau PAGASA projected Typhoon Nina’s landfall at 5:00 p.m. on 25 December in Bato, Catanduanes (the southern tip of the province) and to head towards Camarines Sur, Quezon, and Cavite.

On power supply, the National Grid Corp. of the Philippines (NGCP) reported that no transmission lines and facilities were affected as of 11:00 a.m. today (Dec. 25).

Per the directive of the DOE Secretary, NGCP has activated its 24/7 operations last 23 December at 5:00 p.m. at the overall command monitoring center (OCMC) in its headquarters in Quezon City.

Regional command and monitoring centers in DasmariƱas in Cavite, Tayabas in Quezon, Naga City in Camarines Sur and Ormoc City in Leyte were activated, while other regional command monitoring centers in other areas of the country will be activated once the typhoon comes near and makes landfall.

The Secretary tasked DOE Usec. Felix William Fuentebella to spearhead the monitoring who checked on the activities at the OCMC with NGCP personnel yesterday afternoon (Dec. 24).

Likewise, another visit at the OCMC is scheduled on Monday (26 Dec.) at 1:00 p.m. for updates on the ground.

“For the public, take all safety and pre-cautionary measures given by government agencies to protect your well-being,” Sec. Cusi finally advised.
