Hydrotec to develop eight small hydropower projects in Manilla

Philippines Flag

Hydrotec Renewables Inc. has received a number of contracts from the Philippine Department of Energy that will add up 30 MW of cumulative small hydroelectric capacity to the country's grid.

The award calls for the construction of eight small hydro projects along the Marikina River and its tributaries at a combined cost of about US$60.42 million.

Included are the Sitio Wawa, San Isidro and San Jose plants, to be located near Rodriguez City; the Tumana and Nagka 4 plants in Marikina City; the Hinulungant Taktak and Nanga 1 in Antipolo City; and San Mateo near San Mateo City.

Hydrotec said construction at three of the sites has already begun, and that all the new plants should be completed by 2016.

The Philippines have been a hotbed for hydroelectric project development in recent months.

HydroWorld.com reported this past November that the country had declared seven proposals for the country's Western Visayas region as being commercially feasible, while MTD Philippines announced its plan to construct 10 small projects in September.
