CalEnergy Philippines, through a build-operate-transfer arrangement with the
Philippine government, operates and maintains a power plant on the island of
Luzon in the Philippines.|
Commencing commercial operation in December 2001, the Casecnan Multipurpose
Irrigation and Power Project is a combined hydro and irrigation facility
that diverts excess water from the Casecnan and Taan rivers through a
16-mile-long tunnel to a generating plant. The water is then used to irrigate
nearly 137,000 hectares of rice fields in central Luzon. In addition to
generating 150 megawatts from its own hydro plant, the Casecnan facility
provides water to two other nearby hydro plants.
CalEnergy Philippines provides assistance to local governments and
communities through its corporate social responsibility programs and
supports educational opportunities, livelihood projects, environmental
stewardship, and infrastructure development.
CalEnergy Philippines completed a six-year pilot reforestation program in
2010, with more than 3,600 hectares reforested. Maintenance of reforested
areas is ongoing.
In October 2012, after more than 11 years in commercial operation, CalEnergy
Philippines achieved 1.75 million safe man-hours worked without a lost-time
accident or Occupational Safety and Health Administration recordable
