The Alsons Power Group’s power generation facilities are presently focused on the island of Mindanao where these plants play a key role in providing electricity to fuel Mindanao’s growing population and expanding economy. The Group currently operates three diesel power facilities: the Southern Philippines Power Corporation’s (SPPC) 55 Mega Watt (MW) plant in Alabel, Sarangani, the Western Mindanao Power Corporation’s (WMPC) 100 MW plant in Zamboanga City, and the 103 MW Mapalad Power Corporation (MPC) plant in Iligan City. In April 2016, the group's first coal-fired powerplant - the first 105 MW section of the SEC plant in Maasim, Sarangani began commercial operations. All four power facilities have helped end the power shortage in Mindanao.
To help provide a stable source of baseload power for Mindanao and ensure long-term power security for the island, the Alsons Power Group is developing the second 105 MW section of the SEC coal-fired powerplant in Maasim, Sarangani Province and the 105 MW San Ramon Power Incorporated (SRPI) plant in Zamboanga City. SEC 2 is expected to begin operations in 2019 and SRPI is targeting to commence by 2021.
The Group is engaged in power plant management and maintenance operations under Alto Power Management Corporation (APMC) a partnership between publicly-listed Alsons Consolidated Resources, Inc. (ACR) through Conal Holdings Corporation (CHC) and Toyota Tsusho Corporation (TTC) of Japan. APMC currently operates the Group’s diesel plants in Iligan, Sarangani, and Zamboanga City. APMC has also provided management or consultancy services to power plants in Vietnam, Pakistan, and Indonesia. Alsons Energy Development Corporation (AEDC) is the Group’s business development vehicle for new power generation and other power related projects.
All of these efforts are in keeping with the Alsons Power Group’s commitment to provide safe, reliable, and affordable power to the people of Mindanao and the rest of the country.
