The power barge which will save the Boholanos from brownouts was finally moored at the Tapal Wharf in Ubay town at 5:38 yesterday afternoon.
The barge which left General Santos City last Thursday will be moored at the port on a temporary set-up until the mooring facilities in Catagbacan, Loon will be prepared to accommodate the 4,000 toner barge.
The power barge has a rated capacity of 32 megawatts, but can provide some 26 megawatts once commissioned.
The testing of the power output of the barge will be completed within 4 to 5 days.
The transmission line from the barge to the land based connection will run for four kilometers. The crew from Bohol Light Co., Boheco I and Boheco II are fast tracking the completion of the 4-km transmission line.
The provincial government inked a deal with the power barge owner to adopt a “no use-no pay” policy in order to minimize the payment of the consuming public.
