AboitizPower subsidiary Therma Marine, Inc. – Mobile 2 turned-over a rescue boat to barangay Sta. Ana and a refurbished stage to Sta. Ana elementary school.
Therma Marine Mobile 2, a 100-MW power barge is moored in barangay Sta. Ana in the municipality of Nasipit, Agusan del Norte. Bounded by Butuan Bay in the north, the barangay of Sta. Ana is a coastal barangay where fishing is the major occupation of its residents.
With around 3000 residents living along the coastline, the rescue boat will not only serve to safeguard Sta. Ana’s marine sanctuary from illegal fishing, it will also be used for rescue during emergency situations.
“We want to thank you, Sta. Ana for keeping TMI safely operating and its people safe as well. You too, are also our heroes for helping us in securing our operations, enabling us to provide the much power to our customers all over Mindanao” said Therma Marine COO Jovy Batiquin.
TMI also turned-over a refurbished stage to Sta. elementary school, benefitting more than 400 pupils, with a promise to come back and turn the newly refurbished stage into a multi-purpose hall for the whole school to use for their various activities.
“AboitizPower has been giving too much, we already reached our business income goal of 85% for the year, thanks to AboitizPower. Thank you for the programs and projects that you and Therma Marine have given to us. This is the time for us [local government unit] to be able to share and our part for our community” said Nasipit municipal vice mayor Hon. Dick Carmona during the turnover ceremony.
