Sunwest to Build 50 Megawatts of Hydro Plants in the Philippines

Sunwest Water and Electric Co. will build nine hydropower plants with combined capacity of 50 megawatts in the Philippine provinces of Antique and Aklan, the company said in a statement.

The projects are at various stages of development, with an 8-megawatt run-of-the-river plant called Villasiga1 expected to start operations in June, it said. The company, also known as SUWECO, aims to complete the rest within five years.

“The entry of these hydropower projects are expected to increase the sources of reliable, clean and cost-efficient indigenous power in the island,” Antique Governor Exequiel Javier said in the same statement.

Sunwest said it has 59 projects at different stages of development and will generate total capacity of around 280 megawatts in 10 years. Hydro accounts for about a fifth of the Philippines’ installed generating capacity, according to data from the Department of Energy.
