Bacman geothermal unit 2 operational by October

MANILA --Energy Development Corporation’s (EDC) Bacman Unit 2 is projected to be fully operational by October 2014, after its “permanent fix” due to the havoc of typhoon “Glenda.”

EDC said in a disclosure from the Philippine Stock Exchange (PSE) Tuesday, “the cooling tower restoration works is still-ongoing and is being carried out concurrently with the installation of a brand new Toshiba steam turbine rotor unit and diaphragms (referred to as the Permanent Fix).”

Bacman Unit 2 powers a capacity of 55 Megawatts (MW) and has been offline since July 15, having suffered an unscheduled outage caused by “Glenda’s” wrath.

On the other hand, “Glenda’s” destruction to Bacman Unit 1 only applied to the cooling tower, but is now fully restored.

Currently, it releases the potential 55 MW power capacity.

Meanwhile, the Bacman 3 Unit, which was on outage during the same typhoon’s visit, was being tested through a 30-day reliability run.

Bacman Unit 3 had a maintenance shutdown due to the installation of a new Toshiba generator.

Once it completes its test, another 2 MW will add to the Luzon grid’s power. At the current stable supply, it will fall under reserves.

The 18,870 hectares Bacman Production Field lot is located in the Bicol Region, scoping specifically the Bacon District of Sorsogon City and the Manito, Albay.

EDC is the largest geothermal energy company in the world, with its investments reaching other countries such as Peru, Chile and Indonesia.

The company’s local geothermal projects include the Bacman Geothermal Production Field, Mindanao Geothermal Production Field, Northern Negros Geothermal Production Field, Southern Negros Geothermal Production Field and the Leyte Geothermal Production Field.

EDC also has investment in the hydro-electric energy sector through the Pantabangan and Masiway power plants. --by Juzel L. Danganan (PNA) LGI/JLD
