Located in the Philippines in Bago City, Negros Occidental, the new binary power plant will generate 5.6 MWe gross power by harnessing steam and brine from a high enthalpy geothermal resource.

Exergy was awarded the third repeat contract by Energy Development Corporation (EDC) for the supply of a 5.6 MWe binary system in Barangay Mailum, Negros Occidental, Philippines. This project follows the Mahanagdong order signed in 2023 and the Mindanao project signed in 2021 and completed in 2022.

The power plant will be commissioned in the third quarter of 2024. The scope of work is EPC, with Engineering, Procurement and Commissioning by Exergy and Construction in cooperation with a local qualified Partner.

The binary system utilises Exergy’s highly efficient Radial Outflow turbine and a water-cooled condensing system with cooling towers and will generate electricity by harnessing a mixed steam and brine geothermal resource of around 200°C from the Bago field, confirming the efficiency and reliability of binary units applied to high temperature resources, historically dedicated to steam turbines only.

This third order strengthens the business partnership between Exergy and EDC and Exergy’s position in the geothermal market in the Philippines, with three important references.

Luca Pozzoni, General Manager of Exergy International commented: “We feel privileged to have gained the trust of EDC and work together on our third project. These repeated orders attest to the quality and performance of our technology and our extreme attention and dedication to the customer, with the aim of cultivating long-term partnerships. With EDC we share a vision and commitment to make our future greener and create added value in local communities by employing technologies that enable renewable energy and energy efficiency. We will continue to be an asset for our partners, supporting them in achieving their sustainability goals”.

“This partnership with Exergy International is a testament to our mission to forge collaborative pathways for a decarbonized and regenerative future. Putting up another reliable facility that will supply clean, baseload power or what we in EDC refer to as Geo 24/7, will enable us to continue powering our country’s growing economy without harming the environment,” said Marvin S. Bailon, Vice President and Head of Business Development at EDC.
