Philippines: EDC to Expand at Existing Geothermal Power Plants

EDC to expand geothermal assets (Business Mirror)

Lopez-led Energy Development Corp. (EDC) said last week it would carry out “a small expansion” of its geothermal assets.

“We have a few plants lined up for EDC. They are small, less than 30 MW,” said EDC President Richard Tantoco when asked what renewable-energy projects are in store for EDC this year.

Tantoco said these small expansion projects involve EDC’s geothermal plants at Leyte, Bacon-Manito (BacMan) and Mount Apo.

“Just a couple in the pipeline and we are likely to issue notice to proceed on one of them within the next six months—geothermal, brownfield and within the existing assets for expansions,” he added.
