By Danessa Rivera (The Philippine Star) | Updated January 18, 2017 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines - Aboitiz Power Corp. has contracted an additional five megawatts (MW) of clean energy to Zamboanga Del Norte Electric Cooperative (Zaneco) from its Manolo Fortich hydropower facility in Bukidnon which will be completed in the third quarter of 2017.

AboitizPower said in a statement yesterday its subsidiary Hedcor Bukidnon Inc. signed a power supply deal with Zaneco for an additional five-MW power supply for its franchise areas in 2017.

This is on top of the five-MW supply contract Hedcor and Zaneco inked in June 2016.

In total, Hedcor’s 68.8-MW Manolo Fortich hydropower project will provide 10 MW of contracted supply.

“Manolo Fortich hydro will enable us to further our commitment to support the energy needs of our country, particularly Mindanao. At AboitizPower, we look beyond profitability and explore better ways to integrate good social development and responsible environmental stewardship into our business operations,” Hedcor vice president for Mindanao operations Rolando Pacquiao said.

With Zaneco’s additional power contract, Hedcor’s Manolo Fortich plant now has a total of 23 MW of power contracted.

Other partner electric cooperatives are Zamboanga del Sur Electric Cooperatives 1 and 2, Bukidnon Second Electric Cooperative, Misamis Occidental I Electric Cooperative and Siargao Electric Cooperative.

The 68.8-MW Manolo Fortich hydropower project in Bukidnon will be the latest addition to AboitizPower’s growing portfolio of renewable energy in the country under the Cleanergy brand.

Hedcor will tap the rivers of Tanaon, Guihean, and Amusig for its two cascading run-of-river power plants in Manolo Fortich, producing 360 gigawatt-hours of clean and renewable energy every year for the Mindanao grid.

Manolo Fortich 1, which is contracted to JV Angeles Construction, is now 70 percent complete while, Manolo Fortich 2, which is being constructed by Sta. Clara International Corp., is now on its 68 percent completion status.

Hedcor currently operates 22 hydropower plants in the country—five of which are located in Davao City, four in Davao del Sur, 11 in Benguet, one in Mountain Province, and one in Ilocos Sur. These power plants produce a combined 185 MW of clean and renewable hydropower energy.

Tsuneishi buys power from Aboitiz

Tsuneishi Heavy Industries, Inc. has tapped Aboitiz Power Corp. to provide power for its operations under the retail competition and open access, or RCOA regime.

Big power consumers like Tsuneishi, or those that require one megawatt or more, have the option to choose their own licensed retail electricity suppliers under the RCOA.

“We chose AboitizPower because we trust them. They have a track record of being a reliable and a responsible power company,” Charlie Ombao, THI factory support department manager, said in a statement.

Aboitiz Power is the holding company for the Aboitiz Group’s investments in power generation, distribution and retail electricity services.

Aboitiz Power has been aggressively expanding its RCOA customers by offering competitive rates and diverse source of power supply.

Tsuneishi, meanwhile, is one of the world’s leading shipbuilders of medium-sized vessels. It manufactures and ships its vessels to different parts of the world from Bamban, Cebu province.

Tsuneishi has received 15 orders that are scheduled for delivery this year. It’s presence in Balamban has spurred economic activity in the area.

From being a fourth-class municipality, Balamban became a first-class town with a total regular income of P301.9 million in the same year, according to data from the Commission on Audit.

From a few stores, more than 1,300 business permits were renewed in 2014 and 242 were issued by the local government. The number of business permit renewals rose to 1,327 in 2015.

Tsuneishi employed 11,260 workers, including 760 direct hires. The company hired qualified residents from Buanoy and other parts of Balamban, as well as those from neighboring Toledo City.

Ombao said Tsuneishi was taking its responsibility to the community and the environment seriously.

In line with its parent company’s vision and mission, the facility in Balamban treats wastewater before discharge, segregates wastes so that only residual wastes are brought to the municipal landfill for final disposal, and complies with environment regulations and standards on the treatment and disposal of hazardous materials.

Tsuneishi also encourages employees to participate in annual tree and mangrove planting activities. The company plans to plant 2,500 indigenous tree seedlings in the uplands of Balamban and 5,000 mangrove propagules on foreshore areas every year.
