A run-of-river hydroelectric power is a design scheme for power generation that is least disruptive to the environment. The scheme works by redirecting river water through a weir into conveyance pipes towards a penstock and feeding it downhill to the power station.

How it works:

    • A portion of the water from the upper reaches of a river is diverted into a pipeline through an intake weir.
    • This pipeline brings water to a forebay tank where the water flow is slowed down allowing sand and other particles to settle.
    • From the forebay, clear water passes through a pressure pipe or penstock to the turbine.
    • The natural force of gravity generates energy used to spin the turbine which is enclosed in a powerhouse together with the generator and control equipment.
    • The spinning turbine enables the generator to produce electricity.
    • From the turbine, the water is discharged down a tailrace or canal back into the river.

Hedcor is a wholly-owned subsidiary of AboitizPower. It specializes in generating renewable energy from run-of-river hydropower systems.

Today, Hedcor manages and operates 22 hydropower plants and supplies the country with 185 MW of clean and renewable energy.

Subic Bay CFB Coal-fired Plant Project

The 600-MW CFB coal-fired power plant project located in Subic Bay, Philippines handled by Redondo Peninsula Energy, a joint venture of AboitizPower, Taiwan Cogeneration Corporation (TCC) and Meralco PowerGen Corporation (MPGC), is expected to resume construction after hurdling legal challenges.

The Project uses two single high-efficiency 300-megawatt (MW) units in lieu of two 150-MW units, for a total net generating capacity of 600 MW. The Project’s planned investment is approximately US$1.28 billion for the two phases.

 

Oil-fired power plants utilize the fuel that is injected into its diesel engine, which drives the generator to produce electricity.

Therma Marine, Inc. (TMI) operates two power barges in Maco, Compostella Valley and Nasipit, Agusan del Norte that give Mindanao an additional boost of power supply whenever needed.
