NGCP inks agreement for health center in Batangas
In its commitment to uplift and improve the lives of its partner host communities, the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) signed a memorandum of agreement (MOA) with the municipality of Tuy, Batangas for the construction of a health center in one of the barangays which will host NGCP’s facilities.
Under the said MOA, a health center will be built in Barangay Bolbok, complete with birthing facility provisions, basic medical equipment, and instruments needed for the center’s day-to-day operations. The agreement was signed by NGCP’s President and CEO Mr. Anthony L. Almeda, Tuy Mayor Jose Jecerell Cerrado, and Brgy. Bolbok Captain Juanito del Mundo.
“Building a health center in Barangay Bolbok is our way of giving back. Accessible quality health services are needed by our people, but are insufficient especially in far-flung towns and barangays. With the support of the local government of Tuy to ensure the operation and maintenance of the health center, NGCP knows that this project will greatly benefit the people of Brgy. Bolbok and its vicinity,” NGCP said.
The Municipality of Tuy will host NGCP’s Tuy 230/500kV substation and the Tuy-Dasmariñas 500kV transmission line projects which will improve the transmission network in the Southern Luzon area.
Parcellary survey and right-ofway negotiations are underway for the transmission line project, with an ERC-approved cost of R5.1 billion, which is set to begin construction by January 2019.
