Philippine oil company advances 29.1-MW Timbaban

Government-owned Philippine National Oil Co. (PNOC) is expected to apply soon for an environmental compliance certificate to develop the 29.1-MW Timbaban hydroelectric project in Madalag in Aklan Province, one of seven hydro sites PNOC is pursuing.

The government-owned Philippine Information Agency said West Japan Engineering Consultants has completed an updated feasibility study for the project and that PNOC soon is to file for certification from the Department of Environment and Natural Resources.

Aklan also is awaiting enactment of a law exempting the Timbaban area from the National Integrated Protected Areas System before the run-of-river plant could be developed.
