Luzon power shortage continues (7:31 a.m.)

A TELEVISION report said the power supply deficiency in some Luzon areas will likely to continue until Friday.

National Grid Corporation of the Philippines (NGCP) Deputy Assistant Technical Officer Carlito Claudio said the power shortage was due to the problems encountered by three power plants.

The power plant in Masinloc, Zambales encountered problem in its boiler tube, which led to a 315-megawatt power supply deficit from its normal power capacity.

San Lorenzo Power Plant also experienced a 250-megawatt power deficit while the Unit 3 of the Limay Combined Cycle Plant in Bataan is still under maintenance which led to a 90-megawatt power deficit.

Overall power supply deficiency reached to 655 megawatts. (Sunnex)
