DAVAO Light and Power Company, Inc., one of AboitizPower’s distribution utilities, has launched its new Calinan substation, the city’s first digital substation located within the district.

A substation is an integral part of the power distribution system that ensures the safe delivery of electricity to homes and businesses. Digitizing a substation is a big step in improving accuracy, efficiency, reliability, and availability of power supply.

AboitizPower’s Calinan digital substation has an improved higher capacity that can cater to more customers in surrounding areas. It is equipped with a communications system that allows for online monitoring and assessment, leading to early detection of possible technical problems, where immediate action can then be taken. This will significantly reduce, shorten, and even prevent power outages and their impact to the community. This will also minimize the physical checking of the substation’s status and manual labor in restoring power, which is vital during the quarantine period.

Davao Light launches its first digital substation. The higher capacity and streamlined operations of the digital substation cater to the growing demand for power in surrounding areas.

“The threat of the pandemic did not lessen the dedication and commitment of Davao Light in providing reliable power and quality service to its customers. We continued to push forward with this project despite the trying times because the Calinan substation will help us make sure to keep the lights on for our customers during this community quarantine period,” said Rodger S. Velasco, Davao Light President and COO.

With its vision to be a world-class distribution utility, AboitizPower subsidiary Davao Light has kept its pace in the worldwide trend of digitization as a pioneer in the country’s power industry in spite of the ongoing COVID-19 health crisis. |-BNN
