Hospital in Bataan, Philippines Gets Flood-protection Grant from Germany

Flood Control Asia RS Corp., together with the German Government and Local Government Unit of Bataan, finally launched the Flood Protection project for the Jose C. Payumo Jr. Memorial District Hospital in Dinalupihan, Bataan, Philippines.

The grand launching held on January 22, 2021, was attended by the executives of Flood Control Asia RS Corp., President and CEO, Dr. Andreas Klippe and Exec Vice President, Ma. Fatima Usi. Also with them was German Ambassador, Her Excellency Anke Reiffenstuel.  The event was held at the Bunker Building, Provincial Capitol Compound in Balanga City, Bataan, Philippines.

The launching of the project was also attended by the Province of Bataan Governor Albert S. Garcia, Dinalupihan Mayor Ma. Angela S. Garcia and Dr. Merlina Layug of the JCPMDH. One highlight of the event was the signing of the Memorandum of Understanding for the project. A press conference followed the grand launching. 

“This is a welcome development for the Municipality of Dinalupihan, and the Dinalupihan District Hospital. So, I am happy to welcome and I hope we learn more about this technology. Not only in Dinalupihan, but also in other parts of the province of Bataan and other provinces in the country [which] are frequented by floods, especially during the monsoon season.”
Bataan Governor Albert S. Garcia on the launching of the Flood Protection project.

The grant was given by the Federal Republic of Germany and Flood Control Asia RS Corporation. The project aimed to protect two COVID-19 referral hospitals against flooding and the damages it can bring.

“When I first heard about the approach of Flood Control Asia RS Corp., that hospitals in the PH are used to many challenges, and CoVid is just the latest one that comes on top of everything else… a Flood Protection would provide protection in the sights of these relevant critical infrastructures.”
Her Excellency, Anke Reiffenstuel on the idea of Flood Protection of hospitals in the Philippines.

After the press conference, the RS Flood Experts of Flood Control Asia RS Corp. will push through with the engineering assessments that will make JPCMHD a few steps away from being flood-proof, in time for the rainy season in the Philippines.

“Let’s protect the two CoVid-19 hospitals against flooding, and let’s do it now.”

Travel Time shorten as DPWH starts Bataan-Cavite Interlink Bridge Project

Despite the CoVid-19 pandemic in the Philippines, the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) pushed through with the Bataan-Cavite Interlink Bridge Project that will connect the provinces of Bataan and Cavite.

Under the Build, Build, Build program of President Rodrigo Duterte’s Administration, DPWH Secretary Mark Villar officially announced the start of the Detailed Engineering Design (DED) activities for the mega bridge project that will provide a permanent road linkage between the two provinces of Central Luzon and Southern Tagalog.

The 3.3 billion pesos project is expected to construct the 32.15 kilometers bridge with four lanes: 2 lanes for each opposite direction starting from Barangay Alas-Asin in Mariveles, Bataan crossing Manila Bay and terminating in Barangay Timalan, Naic, Cavite.

Villar said that the project aims to ease the journey time of travellers going to Cavite, and to help the traffic congestion in Metro Manila.

Meanwhile, Unified Management Office Operations (UPMO) Undersecretary Emil Sadain said that the sooner the largest and longest iconic bridge will be constructed, the faster the way from Cavite to Bataan and vice versa will be.

Sadain also added that with the Bataan-Cavite Interlink Bridge, the present 5-hour travel time is expected to be reduced to 20 to 30 minutes.

PGH Flood Protection Project Kicks off with Engineering Assessment

Hospitals are one of the most important if not, the most important operating facilities in the world right now due to the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) or CoVid-19 pandemic. Without them, there’s no telling how massive the case of CoVid-19 all over the world is. However, CoVid-19 is only one of the many problems people face in this pandemic.

Natural disasters like flooding would not stop just because of the pandemic. For instance, flooding could still reach hospitals, jeopardize their operations and the people they serve. An example for this is the Philippine General Hospital (PGH) in Metro Manila, Philippines, which experiences flooding every time it rains.

“Dahil sa baha nahihirapan ang mga pasyente lumabas at pumasok. Pangalawa, yung mga empleyadong papasok, pag umuuwi, lumulubog sila sa tubig para makapasok at makauwi. ‘Yung mga may sasakyan, problema din kasi inaabot yung sasakyan nila ng baha.”
Engr. Danilo H. Metrillo on flooding situations outside of the Philippine General Hospital.

This is why the German Government and Flood Control Asia RS Corp., initiated the Flood Protection project for the said hospital. In a Press Conference conducted on December 2, 2020 the officials of the PGH, the German Ambassador and the executives of the Flood Control Asia RS Corp. signed the memorandum of agreement for the project. German flood control barriers will be set up in the entrances of the hospitals so that flooding can be mitigated.

On Monday, December 9, 2020, RS Engineers finally kicked off the Flood Protection project for PGH by conducting the Engineering Assessment on different entrances of the said hospital.

“How can the hospital operate or continue its operation and serve the country for the COVID patients if the hospital is flooded? So that is why this hospital is considered as one of the top hospitals to be protected.”

Flood Control Asia RS Corp. Head of Business and Development, Alvin Baking, during the Engineering Assessment of RS Flood experts at PGH last December 9, 2020.

As one of the initial steps of the project, RS Engineers first identified the flood prone areas of PGH so they can provide optimum solutions against flooding with the use of German Flood Solution Systems.

“After this engineering assessment, we will go back into our office to check all the findings that we have. The next step is to create a suitable plan and also the system to be used so the flood barriers will work as intended and will not hamper the operations of the hospital.”

Alving Baking added.

After the engineering assessment, RS engineers will proceed with research and create a detailed engineering plan for the Flood Control project of the PGH. The project is expected to be finished on April 30, 2020.

Flood Expert Calls for the Flood-protection of Critical Infrastructures

The European Chamber of Commerce of the Philippines (ECCP) arranged an online forum discussing the importance of water management and flood risks in the Philippines.

In the second installment of Future Cities Forum 2020, ECCP focused on the theme, “Managing Flood Risks and Water Security in the Philippines”. This topic was timely after a series of typhoons wreaked havoc in many parts of the Philippines; one of which is Typhoon Ulysses or known internationally as “Vamco” which pummelled Metro Manila and some parts of Northern Luzon in November of 2020.

Since flooding has been a prolonged problem in the country, keynote speakers in the discussion tackled long-term solutions, as well as unconventional approaches, to flooding situations.

They also shared their thoughts on water management in the Philippines.

From a Flood Expert’s Perspective

President and CEO of Flood Control Asia RS Corp., Dr. Andreas Klippe, is one of the keynote speakers in the said forum. From the perspective of a German engineer and flood expert, Dr. Klippe cites that flooding has a huge impact on the economy.

Dr. Klippe highlighted that protecting critical infrastructures such as hospitals, universities, factories, and government facilities is imperative. For him, these types of structures should consider having flood solution systems so they can operate, despite hindrances brought by flooding.

“We concentrate on critical infrastructures…To protect everybody, we have to protect infrastructure”.

In addition, Dr. Klippe said that having a vision, not just for the next few years, is important as flooding gets worse every year due to climate change. He claimed that it is always the people who pay for the damages brought by flooding.

“It is important to have a vision for the next 10, 20, 50 years. Even until 2100…At least protect your critical infrastructures first because you will be flooded quite more often. Climate change can bring us more increased typhoons”.

Dr. Klippe also encourages the private sectors to protect themselves, especially business establishments from flooding. He added that the moment the business sectors are flooded, they would either leave the country or shut down their operations.

Dr. Klippe also encourages the government, private sectors and the civilians to not wait for the next flood before they act. 

In his ending speech, Dr. Klippe cited a three-way process for water conservation: protect the water, collect the water, and reuse the water.

The forum was attended by other speakers: Sec. Delfin Lorenzana, Department of National Defense – Philippines; Sen. Grace Poe, Senate Public Services Committee Chair; and Dr. Sevillo David Jr., Department of Environment and Natural Services (DENR) Representative.
