The Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) on Wednesday said it would look into the possible security threat of China’s co-ownership of the country’s lone power transmission line.
Lawmakers recently called for a review of the 40-percent stake of State Grid Corp. of China in the National Grid Corp. of the Philippines (NGCP), which won the bid in 2009 to run the power lines
Concerns were raised on the possibility of China remotely shutting off the Philippines’ power grid in times of conflict, but the NGCP downplayed this as “baseless” and “purely speculative.”
There have also been reports that only Chinese engineers have been able to operate and control the NGCP’s transmission facilities because they were the only ones familiar with the technology installed for the control of the grid
