Diesel power plant
set to rise in Bago

The multi-million 18.9 megwatt diesel plant to be constructed by the Central Negros Power Reliability Inc. in Brgy. Calumanggan, Bago City, is expected to be fully operational in November this year, Henry Sia, project manager, told the DAILY STAR yesterday

At the ground-breaking for the plant yesterday in Purok San Jose, Brgy Calumanggan, Sia said, the project is expected to be completed by either September or October this year.

The diesel plant was conceptualized as part of Central Negros Electric Cooperative’s Power Reliability Program to protect Bacolod and Central Negros from power interruptions in the Visayan Grid and the price unpredictability of the Visayan Wholesale Electricity Spot Market, he said.moremoremore

Tacloban, Iloilo fishermen
receive 230 NVC bancas

TACLOBAN – The 230 fishermen who lost their means of livelihood when super typhoon “Yolanda” lashed through their villages in Leyte and Iloilo got new leases on life Saturday.

The Negrense Volunteers for Change gave the fishermen boats with 6.5-horsepower engines, which they said will finally enable them to earn again, instead of depending on dwindling relief goods to keep their families alive.

Aside from the distribution of the fishing boats, NVC also kicked off the six-month Mingo feeding programs for 1,125 children, aged 6 months to three years old, in Yolanda-hit fishing villages.moremoremore
