Coal Power Plant in the coast of Mariveles Bataan.
« on: February 19, 2011, 11:23:31 PM »


For the last few months I was kriss-crossing the North Channel of Manila Bay and I am always wondering about the construction in Mariveles coast. Only last night I found from the Internet that the construction in Mariveles coast is a Coal Power Plant owned by the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines. The 600-megawatt coal power plant will connect the GNPower Mariveles Coal Plant to the Luzon Grid. Below were some of the recent photos of Mariveles coast.




































Mariveles coal plant to be linked to Luzon power grid

THE ENERGY Regulatory Commission has allowed the National Grid Corporation of the Philippines to construct facilities that will connect GNPower Mariveles Coal Plant Ltd.’s 600-megawatt coal power plant to the Luzon grid.

In its decision, the ERC said the connection assets are essential to delivery of power from the generation facility, which will be completed in August 2012, to the Luzon grid.

The NGCP is expected to spend P918.7 million for the construction of 19-kilometer 230-kilovolt transmission line to connect GNPower’s coal power plant to the Luzon grid at the Limay B substation.








It would also fund the construction of a 3-km temporary line to provide power during the testing and commissioning period of GNPower’s facility prior to completion of the said transmission line; as well as the upgrade of the Limay B substation to accommodate the connection of the generation facility.

NGCP has signed in January this year a Connection Asset Construction and Maintenance Agreement with GNPower for this particular project.

Under the agreement, NGCP shall construct the connection assets and provide the necessary financing for such construction. In consideration, GNPower shall pay NGCP the related connection charges.








NGCP and GNPower earlier explained that it was imperative that the ERC approve the connection project because the power project will help avert a power crisis that will adversely affect the Luzon grid as early as 2011.

“The connection assets are essential to the delivery of power from the generation facility to the Luzon grid. Thus, it is imperative that construction of the connection assets commence immediately so that the same may be ready to deliver the generation facility’s power to the grid when the said facility commences commercial operations on the latter part of 2012,” the two companies said.

According to the government’s Power Supply and Demand Situationer for 2006-2014, power supply situation will become critical in Luzon beginning this year.

By 2011, the dependable capacity will no longer be sufficient to meet Luzon’s required capacity.








The additional capacity to be provided by GNPower’s coal power plant will thus help avert the significant economic cost of protracted brownouts, such as reduced investment, lost production and the loss of business confidence, they added.

I am wondering why our bright boys in the Industry and the Government permitted the building of an Electric Power Plant on the vulnerable location in Mariveles, Bataan just half-mile from the busy shipping lane – Traffic Separation Zone of Corregidor’s North Channel. It could have been built further east from Limay Bataan.

It will be very difficult to secure these Power Plant in case of war with an aggressive neighboring country since this site is located adjacent to a very busy shipping traffic lane. Once the Coal-powered Electric Power Plant is in full operation then the new Pier adjacent to the Power Plant will be used by vessels carrying coal cargo for the power plant, then the maneuvering of the vessel that will dock on the power plant’s pier will disturb the traffic flow in North Channel especially the pier was just half mile from the edge of the Traffic Separation Zone.

The Mariveles Power Plant is built by PRC Chinese company, the China National Electric Engineering Co. Ltd.  Why our government allowed PRC China company to participate in the building or also in the operation of the mentioned Power Plant when PRC China is our country’s potential enemy in the future owing to their occupation of some of our islands and reefs in the West Philippine Sea.
