A Japanese shipbuilding/ship repair facility at the Salvacion Port in Hinobaan is expected to create 5,000 new jobs in the southernmost town of Negros Occidental, Hinobaan Mayor Ernesto Estrao said yesterday.

Estrao said the signing of a memorandum of understanding by Gov. Alfredo Marañon Jr. with Tsuneishi Heavy Industries Inc. (THICI) in Tokyo yesterday during the visit of President Rodrigo Duterte to Japan will pave the way for the construction of the facility that is expected to start early next year.

Estrao said top officials of THICI had been to Hinoba-an and he expects their technical working group to return following the MOU signing in Japan. moremoremore

NGCP: Negros experiences
46-megawatt power deficit

Negros Island experiences a shortage of 46-megawatt of electricity daily, from 4-9:45 p.m., due to lack of base load power, despite excess power during daytime.

This was according to Wilmar Gonzaludo, head of the Negros Area Control Center of the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines, when asked about the status of power supply in the Visayas region.

He said the power deficit in both Negros Oriental and Negros Occidental is caused by insufficient base load supply during these critical hours.
