Sale of Batangas biomass plant ongoing


    The planned sale of the equipment as well as the land of its 8.8 megawatts (MW) Aseagas Corp. biomass plant in Batangas has been affected by the pandemic, Aboitiz Power Corp. said.

    “There are certain parties that have started expressing interest on the land, before it (wa)s just the equipment. …We have serious buyers but because they cannot do due diligence on the equipment specifically on the engines because they cannot travel,” said Emmanuel Rubio, AboitizPower president and chief executive officer.

    AboitizPower has decommissioned the Batangas power plant in 2018 due to unavailability of the supply of organic effluent wastewater that serves as its feedstock. – Jed Macapagal
