Lanao Del Norte: Iligan City's Maria Cristina Power Plant

by lakwatserong tatay

Aside from its nature park, this facility also holds one of the power plants that supplies electricity of the province. Sad to say we just have the glimpse of it, we wasn't able to see and get inside the power plant that time. But being there and standing in front of Agus VI Hydroelectric Plant is one of a kind experience.

This power plant has 3 levels which offers you the great view of Maria Cristina Falls. Each levels has different facilitating area which maybe used in this hydroelectric plant.

One of the great rewarding views of Agus River

Maria Cristina Falls powers the Agus VI hydroeletric plant, one of the several hydroelectric plants that harness Agus River. The power plant has a 200 mw potential capacity supplied by a water flow of about 130 cubic meters per second.

Located at the 3rd level is a photo memorabilia, how Maria Cristina Power Plant started. From a simple and very serene waterfalls and turned into a hydroelectric power plant.

how it started......

Agus VI is operated by the National Power Corporation and was commissioned on May 31, 1953. Under President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo's Mindanao Super Region development plan, the Agus VI is planned to undergo a 1.856 billion peso upgrading project.

Being situated along one of the banks of Agus River, it has an ideal viewing distance from Maria Cristina Falls, which most of the tourist alike got a good view of the falls from either the second and third deck of the plant. Along the sides of the falls and its surroundings are trees and other wild plants which seems unaffected by the activities of the National Power Corporation, through the years it looks like untouched forest even with such activities of the plant.

Actual trend of wearing the watches on wrist came to existence after the World War 1, because at that time soldier found it so much difficult to carry a watch in their pockets as at the time of Warfield they have to run, jump and perform several other difficult tasks during which they misplace their watches. To overcome this problem they tied that watch on their wrist. Many people followed them by saying that if the real soldiers can wear why they can’t. In the very beginning all the watches were fully mechanical as technology developed to great extent scientists have replaced the mechanical formula with the quartz vibrations or electronic pulse. As the technology developed the watches came with several features like GPs navigation, alarm, timers and many more. The famous companies are Rolex, Timex, Casio, Seiko, Fossil etc. The watches are available in different price ranges ranging from a few hundred to crores.
