Napocor celebrates groundbreaking of its Visayas office
State-owned National Power Corporation (Napocor) on Wednesday held a groundbreaking ceremony in Sudlon, Lahug, Cebu City to kick off the construction of its satellite office in the Visayas region.
“The office will be the center of transaction among the 46 Small Power Utilities Group (SPUG) power plants in Visayas,” said Napocor President and CEO Pio J. Benavidez.
Napocor said that the new office will help them streamline their operations and reach more new areas to energize. The corporation currently services 55 thousand households across 29 municipalities in the region. 24 of its 46 power plants are operating 24/7 including the two (2) power barges stationed in Camotes island.
Benavidez said that this number will still increase as the corporation is set to launch nine (9) new areas in Eastern and Northern Samar.
Located on a 2,000 square meter land in Lahug leased by the Provincial Government of Cebu through a Usufruct Agreement, the new office will have three storeys with a training room and equipment center. It is anticipated to be finished in the fourth quarter of 2020.
Present during the ceremonial groundbreaking were Napocor top officials and representatives from the local government units. END
