Philippines to get 3 Biomass power plants
Posted on : 03 Jan, 2017
Bronzeoak, a renewable energy developer, is planning to build 3 biomass plants in Philippines. The company is already building its first biomass plant and expects it to be completed by the second quarter of 2017.
The company has secured $141-million funding from IFC for the three plants. The three plants will be located in San Carlos, South Negros and North Negros.
The company plans to concentrate on completing the San Carlos plant first and the construction at the other plants will be begin thereafter.
The San Carlos plant is undergoing reconfiguration of its boilers from the original capacity of 18 MW to 19.99 MW – which has delayed the project slightly.
The redesigning of the boiler will help to fuel the plant with not just pure sugar cane waste (which is expected to be the main feedstock) but also wood chips, coconut husks or even rice husks and napier grass.
Bronzeoak has signed an agreement with Wuxi Huaguang Electric Power Engineering to supply the boiler of the biomass projects.
Bronzeoak has also completed five solar power projects with a total capacity of 143 MW located in La Carlota City, the municipality of Manapla and San Carlos City.
