Olongapo Pursues Modernization of its Power Distribution System

Olongapo City Sanggunian unanimously approved in June 23, 2004 the modernization plan for its power distribution system, which was seen as a vote towards Olongapo’s future growth.
The City leaders showed political resolve to pursue the project through private sector participation despite criticisms from some sectors. “We’d rather be part of the solution than be part of the problem,” said Vice Mayor Cynthia Cajudo, chair of the Olongapo City Sangunian Panglungsod.
Incoming Mayor James Gordon, Jr. has also expressed his full support for the project stressing that in order for Olongapo to compete with other countries as the next investment hub, it is imperative that they bring down the cost of electricity to a more competitive level. He sees the project as a step towards the realization of this vision.
The project will not only infuse the much needed investments, it will likewise bring in private sector efficiency and expertise to address high systems losses, power interruptions, and fluctuating electric current due to antiquated and obsolete power facilities.
The City has already completed the Technical Study and Bid/Tender Documents for the Project with technical assistance from the BOT Center of the Department of Trade and Industry. Bidding is expected to commence by August 2004.
