The National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) has sought the Energy Regulatory Commission’s (ERC) approval for its PhP 853 million Toril substation project at Davao City. The substation will be built in two phases. The first phase that is estimated to cost about PhP 730.01 million will involve the realignment of the Toril–Davao transmission line and site development, as well as the construction of a control building, a 138 kV cable trench, and a 138 kV switchyard. The second phase that will cost about PhP 122.81 million will entail the installation of a 50 MV ampere transformer and its associated power circuit breakers, along with the construction of a 69 kV switchyard. The substation, built by Therma South, will be situated near the upcoming 300 MW coal-fired power plant.
