CESI is supporting the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP)’s implementation of the Mindanao-Visayas HVDC Interconnection Project (MVIP).
The project, which represents a strategic milestone in the country’s energy strategy, aims to unify the Philippines’ power transmission networks, eventually linking together highly populated islands to create one grid and ensure energy resources can be shared across the country.
The HVDC infrastructure comprises around 220km of overhead lines and 92km of submarine cable, which runs from Dumanjug converter station in Cebu to Lala converter station in Mindanao, with a capacity of around 900MW at ±350 kV.
CESI will provide full Owner’s Engineering services for the HVDC converter and electrode stations as well as for the HVDC submarine and communication optical cables.
CESI consultancy services include:
- System study review
- System design review
- Assessment of equipment design
- Supervision of construction and management of implementation
- Supervision of testing and commissioning and verification of trial operation
- Knowledge transfer
