DMCI Power Corporation (DCMI), a subsidiary of DMCI Holdings Inc., is planning to construct a coal-fired power plant in the Philippines.
The project involves the construction of a 15MW coal-fired power plant. It includes the construction of a substation, a powerhouse, a storage facility and related facilities, the installation of turbines, boilers, biomass feed-in facility, transformers and generators, and the laying of transmission lines.
In May 2015, Palawan Council for Sustainable Development (PCSD), after two years of opposition, granted approval for the project.
However, the project has still faced opposition from environmental groups in Palawa. Civil society groups submitted a petition to the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) pleading to deny its issuance of an Environmental Compliance Certificate (ECC).
In August 2015, DMCI modified the design by incorporating biomass feed-in facility for the originally planned coal-fired power plant. The power plant will be able to use intake like agricultural waste, baggase, garbage, and others as fuel to generate power.
On May 28, 2016, DENR conducted a public hearing for the project.
The project is facing delay due to environmental concerns.
The project involves the construction of a 15MW coal-fired power plant at Barangay Bato-Bato in the town of Narra in Palawan, Philippines.
The US$25 million project includes the following:
1. Construction of a substation
2. Construction of a powerhouse
3. Construction of a storage facility
4. Installation of transformers and generators
5. Installation of turbines and boilers
6. Installation of biomass feed-in facility
7. Laying of transmission lines
8. Construction of related facilities
