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.

With more than 30 years of experience, Hedcor is the leading run-of-river developer in the Philippines.

Manolo Fortich Hydro Project

Hedcor’s 68.8 MW Manolo Fortich Hydroelectric Power Plant (HEPP) project in Bukidnon is now on full-swing construction after its groundbreaking ceremony in April 2015.

The P12.5 billion project is designed to have two cascading plants, the 43.4 MW Manolo Fortich Hydro 1 and the 25.4 MW Manolo Fortich Hydro 2. This is the first venture of Hedcor in Bukidnon Province.

Large hydroelectric power plants use the stored energy of water in reservoirs and allow its flow to drive hydraulic turbines. Water in the reservoir enters a hydroelectric power plant through an intake. The water flows through a penstock which channels the water to the turbine. The turbine is a mechanical device that converts water’s kinetic energy into mechanical energy, which in turn drives the generator. The generator is a rotating machine that converts mechanical energy into electrical energy.

It is moored in the Navotas Fishport Complex in Manila and was previously owned by Duracom Mobile Power Corporation and East Asia Diesel Power Corporation.

TMO’s capital stock is held by TPI and AboitizPower at 77% and 23%, respectively, resulting in AboitizPower’s 100% effective interest therein. TMO acquired four barge-mounted floating power plants located at Navotas Fishport, Manila on May 27, 2011. The barge-mounted floating power plants have an installed generating capacity of 242 MW.

The barges have undergone rehabilitation starting July 2011, and commercial operations began on November 12, 2013 at a capacity of 100 MW. The current dependable capacity of 200 MW was attained and proven in a successful capacity test in April 2014.
