CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY—Hedcor Sibulan Inc. and Hedcor Tudaya Inc., subsidiaries of Aboitiz Power Corp., are the first companies in the Philippines to be at par with the new international asset management standard.
TUV-SUD, the certification body that audits the compliance of an organization with international standards, recommended the ISO 55001:2014 certification for both Hedcor Sibulan and Hedcor Tudaya.
This was after the 56.1-megawatt cascading plants in Sta. Cruz, Davao del Sur—namely Sibulan Hydro A, Tudaya Hydro 1, Sibulan Hydro B, and Tudaya Hydro 2—passed the two stages of the International Standards Organization (ISO) audit.
Hedcor Sibulan and Hedcor Tudaya passed the two stages with “zero non-conformances” on the operation and maintenance activities. This means Hedcor “has an integrated and effective management system for assets that enables the company to achieve objectives and assure these are attained consistently and sustainably over time,” Aboitiz Power said in a statement.
