In February 2008, PRWorks managed the publicity for the inauguration of the construction work of two 100-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power plants in Naga City, Cebu.
NEARLY two years after the project broke ground, the construction of two 100-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power plants in Naga City, Cebu commenced yesterday.
The coal power generations plants are being proposed by the consortium of Salcon Power Corp. (SPC) and Korea Electric Power Corp. (Kepco). The consortium, known as Kepco-SPC (KSPC), proposed the project in 2003 yet with the original target completion in 2008.
SPC senior vice president and chief operating officer Antonio Corpuz said the delay in the construction of the plants was caused by government bureaucratic requirements, not financial difficulties.
The first 100 MW plant is expected to become fully operational in February 2011 while the second one will be in May of the same year.
