Philippines: hydroelectric power plant

Philippine National Oil Co. (PNOC) plans to build another hydroelectric power plant in Mindanao at a cost of about a quarter of a billion dollars to help prevent a looming energy crisis in the country’s second-biggest island. Pedro A. Aquino Jr., PNOC president, said the state-owned company is eyeing to develop the 150MW Bulanog-Batang hydropower project in Bukidnon province. PNOC recently signed an agreement with NORMECA formalizing their technical alliance to facilitate the development of the USD 245 million project. The agreement calls for the review of the potential of the Bulanog and Batang rivers in Talakag, Bukidnon as a viable source of hydroelectric power.
