Duterte to inaugurate coal-fired power plant in Misamis

/ 10:46 AM September 22, 2016

CAGAYAN DE ORO CITY – President Rodrigo Duterte is set to inaugurate the FDC Misamis Power Corp. (FDC Misamis) 405-megawatt coal-fired power plant in Villanueva, Misamis Oriental Thursday afternoon.

The President will join FDC (Filinvest Development Corp.) officials in the unveiling of the marker and in the ceremonial switch-on. He will also give a keynote speech during the program.

The power plant, said FDC Misamis vice chairman Andrew Gotianun Jr. in a statement, is “in line with the Duterte’s administration’s thrust to promote regional growth most especially in Mindanao.”


The company said the power plant, although it uses coal to generate electricity, employs the latest in clean generation through the circulating fluidized bed boiler (CFB) technology.


“Considered as the cleanest process to burn coal, the technology (CFB) is also known for having higher steam generator thus lowering carbon emissions,” it said.

After the inauguration ceremony, the President will then proceed to the Philippine National Police regional headquarters in Camp Vicente Alagar to talk with the police forces, and to preside in the command conference with the police officials in Northern Mindanao.

Chief Supt. Noel Constantino, the regional police chief, will present to Duterte their accomplishment in line with the government’s anti-illegal drug campaign.
