In its effort to ensure effectiveness and efficiency among its employees, the Lanao del Sur Electric Cooperative, Inc. (LASURECO) management sent its technical services team to benchmark MORESCO-1 engineering services as a form of training initiative and developmental interventions.
The benchmark rolled out from May 25-26, 2023 at the MORESCO-1 Headquarters in Laguindingan, Misamis Oriental. Facilitated by Special Equipment Services Chief Engr. Engr. Jojiepril Legaspi and assisted by Technical Assistant Gilbert Tesocan, the team of eight LASURECO Staff were toured around the metering lab among others. The meter labs is one of the core sections of the technical services, and very crucial to the operations of an EC like MORESCO-1 for its energy meters.
Energy meters are an essential part of the energy management system. They are used to measure the amount of energy consumed by residential, commercial, and industrial users. To ensure that the energy meter is accurate, it is important to conduct regular testing. The testing can be conducted either on-site or at a laboratory.
The LASURECO team was composed of Engr. Suaib A. Diangca, Technical Services Manager; Engr. Nasief M. Pandian, Supervisor, Metering and Special Equipment; Engr. Amer Hussain Capal, Warehouse Section Head; Mr. Rasol R. H. Taib, Staff Calibrator; Mr. Abraham Almerol, Line Foreman; Aiman Licawat, Warehouse Staff; Yasser L. Calbe, IT-LAN Officer; and Najeeb M. Esmail, Section Head of Motorpool Division.
