Japanese company JGC Holdings Corporation has been awarded the Engineering, Procurement and Construction (EPC) contract from the Philippines’ Energy Development Corporation (EDC) for a geothermal power generation project planned in Mahanagdong District, Ormoc City, Leyte, Philippines.

This geothermal power plant will apply Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) binary technology to generate an additional 28 MW of electricity power by recovering thermal energy from the existing geothermal brine resource at the Mahanagdong Geothermal Power Plant. JGC Philippines will provide EPC services to EDC, which include construction and commissioning works of the power plant. The ORC technology will be designed and supplied by Exergy International Srl (Exergy) which has a supply portfolio of over 500MWe in capacity.

EDC is a leading Philippines-based renewable energy developer and one of the world’s largest vertically integrated geothermal producers with almost 50 years of expertise in geothermal technology. The Philippines has the third largest installed geothermal capacity in the world after the US and Indonesia. Geothermal power generation is currently being actively developed in the Philippines as it is a stable, climate-independent source of energy

JGC Philippines has been providing EPC and operation and maintenance services to clients in the Philippines for over 30 years. The company is led by JGC Asia Pacific Pte Ltd, which was established in Singapore in 2022 to implement JGC’s growth strategies in Southeast Asia.
