NGCP inks agree­ment for health cen­ter in Batan­gas

Manila Bulletin - - Luzon News -

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.
