Milan, June 7, 2019 – CESI recently won a contract to support National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP)in implementing the Mindanao-Visayas Interconnection Project (MVIP). CESI will help NGCP conduct system studies, engineering, design verifications
, testing, installation and commissioning of all the equipment, material and services required to render the HVDC converter stations at Dumanjug in Visayas and Lala in Mindanao completely operational. The link will be able to transfer 900MW at ±350 kV between Cebu and Mindanao Islands. CESI will support the project with Owner’s Engineering services through two separate contracts: one for the HVDC converter and electrode stations; and another related to submarine power and fiber-optic cables.
The project is a milestone for the area, and is designed to unify the power transmission network across the Philippines, linking together all major Philippine islands to create one grid and ensure sharing of energy sources across the network.
