Sibulan hydro project begins delivering power to the grid in Philippines

The Sibulan Hydropower Project has begun operation, with the first of its two hydro plants generating 26 megawatts, Aboitiz reported.

The Sibulan hydro project is a 42.5-MW greenfield hydropower project. It entails the construction of two cascading run-of-river hydropower plants that will harness the Sibulan and Baroring Rivers in Santa Cruz, Davao Del Sur. The construction of the second plant is under way. The second hydro plant will generate an additional 16.5 megawatts once it is finished. Aboitiz also is considering plans to add more capacity to the hydroelectric project in the future, the company reported.

The Sibulan project includes the construction of five drop intakes; more than 16 kilometers of steel pipes to divert the water from the rivers to the plants; about 3 kilometers of tunnel; and about 34 kilometers of transmission lines to connect the plants to ERA substation at Bajada, Davao City. Each plant will be capable of operating during peak hours.

Aboitiz Power Corporation's Hydroelectric Development Corp. Inc. recently reported that it is looking for sites for new hydro projects in Luzon and Mindanao.
