Aboitiz Power set to start exploration work at its Mt. Apo and Mt. Sibulan geothermal projects in Mindanao, Philippines.

In conjunction with the announcement of the start of operation of the company’s 300 MW Davao clean coal power plant in Mindanao, Philippines, Aboitiz Power announces some geothermal news.

According to the statement, Aboitiz Power is now “set to start exploration around Mt. Apo and Mt. Sibulan after receiving unanimous support from IP communities and local government units.”

The Mt. Apo project received an exploration permit back in October 2014, as we previously reported. There is no potential MW numbers available, but there are existing plants by EDC with an installed capacity of 108 MW.

The Mt. Sibulan-Kapatagan project also has no potential capacity numbers attached.
