ABOITIZ Construction Inc. (ACI) bagged the P206 million contract to design and construct Lima Enerzone Corp.’s 69kV over head transmission line for the Lima Technology Center in Lipa, Batangas.
The latest transmission construction project strengthens ACI’s foothold in the power construction market.
ACI said it has had foundation and erection work in its past transmission projects but the Lima Enerzone project allows ACI to undertake the entire scope of work from design to construction of the substation, switchyard and maintenance-related work for high and low voltage power lines.
Dante Pollescas, chief operating officer of Lima Enerzone, expressed confidence in the capability of ACI to deliver the project ahead of schedule.
“We are excited to partner with ACI, which committed to finish construction before the target date. ACI is an international company with proven track record in delivering quality products to its clients on time,” he said.
ACI president and chief operating officer Albert Ignacio Jr. is optimistic that this will pave the way for more projects of this kind in the future.
The transmission line will traverse 64 kilometers across Batangas City up to Lipa City where the Lima Technology Center is located. (PR)
