The CFB power plant will be constructed for Palm Concepcion Power Corp. (PCPC). The contract, booked during the first quarter of 2013, is valued at nearly $20 million and aims to be completed by the end of 2015.
Alstom will deliver one 135 MW steam turbine, generator set and auxiliaries, including the water cooled condenser for a coal-fired power plant.
The power plant will generate power for the Visayas Grid, in response to the growing Philippine energy demands. Currently the Visayas Grid has a capacity of 1,700 MW, which represents 12 percent of the country’s power demand; and supports interconnected grids in Cebu, Negros, Panay, Leyte, Samar and Bohol.
