Construction of the Mindanao Control Center of the National Grid Corporation of the Phils. (NGCP) is now in progress in Carmen, Cagayan de Oro City.
More specifically, the 4-storey edifice is situated in the existing NGCP District Office in Carmen just beside GSIS. This will become the main control center overseeing the over-all operations of the Mindanao electric grid. The main control center is currently in Iligan City and will be relocated to this new building once it is finished.
This building is said to be equipped with advanced technologies on monitoring and control equipment designed to have efficient operations on the whole of the Mindanao electric grid.
As shown below, work is fast and is now going to the second floor with long steel bars extending up 3 storeys high. Again, the project is in dire need (URGENT!) of carpenters/steel men in a statement beside the perspective. I’ve mentioned in previous posts that carpenters in the city have become hard to find because they have found work in numerous construction projects in the city. The contractor is Enrogel Construction Corp. Among Enrogel’s notable projects include the Cagayan de Oro Medical Center, Capitol University Expansion Building, the Main Gate of The Courtyards, and the Clubhouse of Robinson’s Fresno Parkview being the recent.
With Henry Sy now the major owner of NGCP, funds for building construction wouldn’t be a problem.
