New Projects

Maris Canal Hydro Project

SN Aboitiz Power-Magat, Inc. (SNAP Magat) and National Irrigation Administration (NIA) have signed a Memorandum of Understanding for SNAP Magat to develop the proposed 6-MW Maris South Canal and 1.75-MW Maris North Canal mini-hydropower projects.

This was after SNAP-Greenfiled secured renewable energy service contracts (RESCs) from the DOE for the two projects in December 2013. SNAP-Greenfield is currently waiting for DOE’s approval of the assignment of the RESCs to SNAP-Magat.

Ifugao Hydro Project

SNAP-Ifugao secured RESCs for its proposed 350-MW hydropower complex project in Ifugao, which is composed of three facilities: the 100- MW Alimit and 10-MW Olilicon plants, and the 240-MW Alimit pumped storage facility. Both the Maris and Alimit projects are currently in the feasibility study stage.
