  • November 16, 2023 - Repower starts Quezon run-of-river plant

    MANILA -Businessman Dexter Tiu’s listed Repower Energy Development Corp. commissioned a 1.4-megawatt (MW) run-of-river (ROR) hydroelectric power plant in Quezon province on Wednesday in a bid to expand the company’s portfolio and generate more power for consumers in the Luzon grid.

    Repower’s Lower Labayat plant, its eighth mini hydro facility so far, is slated to have an annual generation of 8 gigawatt-hours. It will be operated by Blue Energy Holdings and Management Corp., an affiliate of Repower.

    “The year 2023 for [Repower] has been truly a period of aggressive expansion to provide clean energy to under-electrified communities in provinces, and this ROR hydropower plant in Barangay Labayat is a testament to the success we are currently experiencing,” Repower president Eric Peter Roxas said in a statement.

    According to Repower, the facility located between the existing Upper Labayat and Tibag hydropower plants utilizes the downstream Labayat river to produce clean energy.

    The three mini hydropower plants are connected through a 69-kilovolt transmission line that is connected to the national grid.

    Repower on Tuesday announced that it was expecting to earn P250 million this year from its operations on the back of newly opened facilities, including the 5.8-MW Tibag power plant.

    It is currently constructing a 4.5-MW hydropower plant in Quezon and a 20-MW facility in Bukidnon province. Both are scheduled for full commercial operations in the first quarter of 2025.

    Repower is also set to construct three more hydropower plants in Northern Luzon next year.

  • November 16, 2023 - Repower Energy launches 8th run-of-river hydropower plant

    Repower Energy Development Corp. (REDC) has started the commissioning phase of its 1.4-megawatt (MW) run-of-river hydropower plant in Quezon province, the company said on Wednesday.

    In a media release on Wednesday, REDC, the pure hydropower subsidiary of Pure Energy Holdings Corp., said its newest hydropower plant is expected to have an annual generation of 8 gigawatts-hour.

    The plant is operated by an affiliate, Blue Energy Holdings and Management Corp.

    “We are proud to have finally completed this meaningful project that certainly benefits our stakeholders, despite the challenges encountered. We thank our many partners for the support in making this project a reality,” Blue Energy President and Chief Executive Officer Christopher John A.D. Tiu said.

    The hydropower plant is the company’s eighth run-of-river hydropower plant. It is located between the operating Upper Labayat and Tibag plants.

    The three hydropower plants are connected via a 69-kilovolt transmission line, which is in turn linked to the power grid operated by the National Grid Corp. of the Philippines.

    REDC President Eric Peter Y. Roxas said 2023 “has been truly a period of aggressive expansion to provide clean energy to under-electrified communities in provinces.”

    He said the hydropower plant in Brgy. Labayat “is a testament to the success we are currently experiencing.”

    “We look forward to continuing enhancing our services to the key markets we operate in so that we can uplift our stakeholders’ standards of living,” he added.

    In June, REDC commissioned its 5.8-MW Tibag project, which is the seventh run-of-river hydropower plant in its portfolio.

    REDC is currently constructing a 4.5 MW hydropower plant in Quezon and a 20 MW plant in Bukidnon. Both plants are targeted to start operations by the fourth quarter of 2025.

    The company said that it has three more hydropower projects in the pipeline located in Northern Luzon that will start construction in 2024.
