Ivyland, PA – American Governor Company (AGC) has been awarded a contract through our Filipino representative Multifactors Sales, for digital governor retrofit and site services for the National Power Corporation’s (NPC) Agus 4 powerplant in the Philippines. This three-unit plant is one of seven on the Agus River, located in the island of Mindanao. Spare parts and support for the existing Toshiba analog electric cabinet actuator were increasingly difficult to find, and NPC wanted improved operator control and monitoring of the unit. AGC responded by offering an equipment package that was similar to the modern PLC-based, color-touchscreen system provided at Agus 2. Equipment delivery is expected in late January 2015, with commissioning and start-up following shortly thereafter.
