Renewable energy now being used by Nestlé factory

Listed power generation firm, Aboitiz Power Corp. has signed an 8.8-megawatt (MW) power supply deal with Nestlé Philippines  Inc for the power requirement of the latter’s manufacturing facility in Lipa, Batangas.

Starting last February, the Nestlé factory has switched to using MakBan geothermal power plant of the Aboitiz group.

 “The partnership between AboitizPower and Nestlé Philippines is a testament to the shared commitment of both companies to continually look for better and sustainable solutions to reduce their carbon footprint and protect the environment in a more sustainable manner,” said Peter Winter, Nestlé Philippines technical director.

Antonio Moraza,  AboitizPower president and chief operating officer, said with the company’s present balanced mix portfolio, the company can serve reliable, ample, and reasonably priced power for its customers’  needs.

AboitizPower and its partners have a net sellable capacity of more than 1,200 MW from its renewable energy portfolio of geothermal, hydro, and solar power plants located all over the country. It is continuously building up its renewable energy portfolio through ongoing projects like the 69-MW Manolo Fortich run-of-river hydro project in Bukidnon and the 8-MW Maris Canal hydro project in Isabela. It is currently commissioning its first biomass power plant through subsidiary Aseagas in Batangas.

 Last April 27, the company celebrated the successful restoration of its 6-MW binary plant at the MakBan facility. The binary plant maximizes the excess steam from the primary power plant to produce additional capacity of clean and renewable energy.
