Philippines to get 64 MW Biomass Plant in Negros Occidental

Posted on : 16 Nov, 2017


Victorias Milling Company (VMC), Philippines’ largest sugar refinery, is setting up a 64 MW biomass power plant in Victorias City, Negros Occidental. The Biomass Cogeneration Project is expected to be ready by end of 2017. 

It is built in the 200-hectare VMC headquarters and is designed to produce power not only for the refinery but also for the national grid. 

VMC is hopeful that it will be able to export 25 MW of its generated power to National Grid Corporation of the Philippines. However, the national power grid is congested currently and it has to be upgraded in order to receive additional power from VMC.

The biomass plant will use mainly bagasse as a feedstock. VMC has bagasse as a byproduct from its sugarcane processing plant. VMC also opened milling operations last September 20 together with the other two sugar centrals in the province. The sugar refinery is confident that their mills will be running at maximum capacity, which is 15,000 to 16,000 tons of sugar a day. This will ensure steady flow of feedstock for the biomass plant.
