Steag completes repair of Misamis power plant

The Philippine Star

MANILA, Philippines - Steag State Power Inc. (SPI), the German operator of the 210-megawatt coal-fired power plant in Misamis Oriental, completed yesterday its preventive maintenance works on the second unit of the facility, providing much-needed capacity back to the Mindanao grid.

SPI plant manager Carsten Evers said the unit was officially synchronized to the Mindanao grid at around 6:08 a.m. yesterday.

“We have successfully completed the preventive maintenance works for our Unit 2 and 105 megawatts (MW) is now made available to the Mindanao grid,” Evers said.

SPI’s Unit 2 went offline on Feb. 19 following a planned preventive maintenance schedule.

Evers said the maintenance activities were needed to sustain and optimize SPI’s long-term power plant operations.

He added that the preventive maintenance works were carefully planned, scheduled and coordinated with key players in the power industry, including grid operator NGCP, to minimize any adverse impact on the already volatile power supply condition of Mindanao.

SPI’s power plant at the Phividec Industrial Estate in Misamis Oriental is composed of two identical power generating units, each with a net generating output of 105 MW.

The company said preventive maintenance for SPI’s Unit 1 is currently in full swing and on track.

Barring any complications, SPI said Unit 1 is expected to be back on line on or before March 16.
