Energy Development Corp. is preparing the transmission connection on its P7.6-billion, 31 MW Bac-Man 3 geothermal power plant to ensure completion in 2017 in time for the plant’s commercial operations.

EDC has sought government approval to develop a dedicated point-to-point limited facility to connect the Bac-Man 3 geothermal power project to the Luzon grid.

EDC expects to complete the construction of the connection project by the latter part of the second quarter of 2017. It wants to have the connection project in place and ready for the commissioning of the Bac-Man 3 project around the fourth quarter of 2017.

It said the completion of the Bac-Man 3 project within the projected time frame was critical to ensure that additional capacity would be available in the Luzon grid.

EDC has already  signed a design and equipment supply contract with Hyundai Engineering Co. Ltd. and a construction services contract with Galing Power & Energy Construction Co. Inc. to build the Bac-Man 3 geothermal power plant.
