The project will connect the Substation in Cebu and Lapulapu Substation in Visayas. As part of the project, Furukawa Electric will supply 230kV AC XLPE-insulated 1600 mm2 triple-core submarine cable, regarded as the world-largest conductor size class submarine cable, and cable temperature and load monitoring system.

The new submarine power transmission will reinforce power transmission capacity and maintain the continuous transmission of power towards the major loads centers in Mandaue and Mactan even during N-1 contingency condition.
