The FDC Misamis Power Corporation is set to double the capacity of its 405-Megawatt Circulating Fluidized Bed Coal-Fired Power Plant located at PHIVIDEC Industrial Estate in Barangays Tambobong and Balacanas in Villanueva, Misamis Oriental.
Based on documents posted on the website of the Environmental Management Bureau (EMB), the proposed expansion will include installation of additional 3 units of 135 MW Circulating Fluidized Bed (CFB) Boiler and 3 steam turbines. This expansion will also cover additional 15 hectares of the existing 84.4-hectare site including foreshore area. Total project cost is estimated to range from Php20 to Php30 billion with construction period of 3 years.
A public hearing for the project was conducted virtually (due to the pandemic) last year in relation to its application for Environmental Compliance Certificate (ECC) with the DENR-EMB. Read the Documentation Report of the Public Hearing HERE.
