Aboitiz Construction, Inc. (ACI) has bagged the PHP206-million contract to design and construct Lima Enerzone Corporation’s 69kV overhead transmission line for the Lima Technology Center in Lipa, Batangas.
The latest transmission construction project strengthens ACI’s foothold in the power construction market demonstrating its capability as a fully-fledged design, engineering, and construction company following its brand refresh two years ago.
ACI has had foundation and erection work as part of transmission projects in the past, but the Lima Enerzone transmission project allows ACI to undertake the entire scope of work from design to construction of the substation, switchyard and maintenance-related work for high- and low-voltage power line. Dante Pollescas, Chief Operating Officer of Lima Enerzone expressed confidence in the capability of ACI to deliver the project ahead of schedule.
We are excited to partner with ACI, which committed to finish construction before the target date. ACI is an international company with proven track record in delivering quality products to its clients on time.– Dante Pollescas, Chief Operating Officer, Lima Enerzone
ACI President and Chief Operating Officer Albert A. Ignacio, Jr., is optimistic that this will pave the way for more projects of this kind in the future.
We thank Lima Enerzone for the trust and confidence. This has actually opened doors for us and as we speak, we are talking to potential clients for a bigger transmission line project. What we have here is a synergy of two companies that can go a long way.– Albert A. Ignacio, Jr., President and Chief Operating Officer, Aboitiz Construction, Inc.
The transmission line will traverse 27 kilometers across Batangas City up to Lipa City, where the Lima Technology Center is located. Mr. Pollescas added that this will increase reliability, ensure continued power supply, mitigate unwanted power outages, and address systems losses, all of which will ultimately benefit the locators within the industrial zone. The design is the result of collaboration between ACI’s engineering and design department and Davao Light.
Rosevel “Bong” Elegado is designated as the project manager.
