Substation undergoes preventive maintenance; MORE upgrades broken, old PECO facilities

first_imgILOILO City – MORE Electric and Power Corp. (MORE Power) completed its comprehensive preventive maintenance of the Jaro substation yesterday an hour early than the expected 13-hour long task. There was a need to do comprehensive maintenance work on the Jaro substation, according to MORE Power, because the load of the substation’s 10MVA transformer was already on critical level. Several netizens acknowledged MORE Power’s prompt maintenance service. Facebook user Bien Anatan said, “Thank you for a job well done and MORE Power to the Ilonggos. God bless to everyone including those who are forever opposed and are everlasting critics of MORE Power. May MORE Power continue to provide you with excellent service to shut your mouth.” The previous distribution utility, Panay Electric Co. (PECO), did not do any preventive maintenance work on the substation for almost eight years, according to MORE Power. MORE Power took the task of fixing and upgrading all of the former distribution utility’s obsolete, broken, aging, and unmaintained facilities. In the past two months that MORE Power came into operation as Iloilo City’s legitimate power firm, it has already made significant improvements and repairs on the metropolis’ electric distribution facilities. Preventive maintenance should have been conducted every two years, said MORE Power’s technical experts. Unfortunately, PECO neglected to do maintenance and upgrading works which resulted in dilapidated facilities that MORE Power inherited, they said. From Feb. 29 to April 29 MORE Power has, among its other accomplishments, upgraded 51 distribution transformers, replaced 51 broken electric poles and fixed 97 hotspot connectors./PN The scheduled power interruption started at 4 a.m. It ended at 3:43 p.m. On the other hand, Jennie Pardilla expressed, “Earlier than expected. Kudos!” Following continuous assessment and inspection, MORE Power has now a benchmark of the expected lifespan of the facilities and has prepared the upgrading of their capacities. For her part, Jazy Borja stated, “Good job, MORE. Continue the excellent service. Dasig! I thought it’ll be at 5 p.m. that they will restore the power connection here in Sambag, Jaro. Pero 3:45 p.m. pa lang nagbalik na!”last_img read more

Hamilton ‘Likely’ to Face Belgian Penalty

first_imgMercedes wednesday said Lewis Hamilton is “likely” to suffer a grid penalty for using too many engine parts at this weekend’s Belgian Grand Prix.The team say they will know for certain today, but a decision to take the extra engine parts Hamilton needs would mean a drop of at least 20 grid places. A series of failures early in the season meant that Hamilton used up more engine components than planned.He heads into the race 19 championship points ahead of team-mate Nico Rosberg.Six wins in the past seven races for Hamilton have turned around what had been a 43-point advantage for the German after the first four races of the season.A spokesman said the team were still working through the requirements and consequences related to any decision to take the penalty in Belgium.The other option is to wait until the Italian Grand Prix the following weekend.Drivers are allowed to use a maximum of five of each of the six parts of an engine before a grid penalty is incurred.Hamilton has already used the maximum permitted five items of two elements of the complicated turbo hybrid engine – the turbocharger and the MGU-H, the electric motor that recovers energy from the turbo.Teams are given a 10-place grid penalty each time they use a sixth example of any component, so using one new of each of these means a 20-place grid penalty for Hamilton.There are only 22 cars on the grid and a driver can only go to the back no matter how many theoretical grid penalties he suffers for using additional engine components.So Mercedes may choose to take two new examples of each of these parts to bring them into line with the number of the other parts of the engine he has used.Hamilton has so far used three each of the internal combustion engine, MGU-K, energy store and control electronics.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
