The Alsons Power Group, Mindanao’s first private sector power generator, said Wednesday its projects on the pipeline are still on track even in the wake of the enhanced community quarantine.
The group is building the ₱4.5-billion, 14.5 megawatt run-of -river hydroelectric power plant at the Siguil River basin in Maasim, Sarangani Province–Alsons Power’s first foray into the renewable energy sector .
The Siguil Hydro power plant is expected to begin commercial operations in 2022 and provide power to Sarangani Province, General Santos City and key municipalities of South Cotabato.
Another project in the company’s pipeline is the 105-MW base load coal-fired power plant of San Ramon Power Inc. in Zamboanga City, which is scheduled to begin operations in 2023.
“Even with the current enhanced quarantine, we do not foresee a major delay in the targeted commencement of operations for our Siguil and SRPI projects,” said Alsons Power executive vice president Tirso Santillan Jr.
