MANILA, Philippines — The local unit of Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems Ltd. (MHPS) has secured a three-year agreement to maintain boilers of the Davao coal plant of Aboitiz Power Corp.

The move is intended to maintain reliable energy access in Mindanao.

In a statement, Mitsubishi Power (Philippines) Inc. said it signed a three-year long-term service agreement (LTSA) for boiler ultrasonic thickness gauging mapping inspection activities at Therma South Inc. (TSI), a 2x150-megawatt (MW) circulating fluidized bed (CFB) coal-fired plant at Barangay Binugao, Toril, Davao City.

The LTSA is implemented from April this year until April 2024, and inspections will be carried out by MHI Power (Philippines) Plant Services Corp., an affiliate company of Mitsubishi Power.

This project is the latest of more than 90 risk-based maintenance projects amounting to 3.6 gigawatts (GW) in capacity that the company has worked on since 2008.

“Reliable and efficient power is the foundation of stable economic and societal growth. Mindanao had faced frequent power shortages before the completion of Therma South and so being able to help play a role in supporting this community is a very proud moment for us,” MHI Power (Philippines) president Vincent Engracia said.

“Our equipment and services supply more than a quarter of the Philippines’ installed capacity, and this partnership is another example of how our total plant solutions are helping communities to power their future,” he said.

The team’s technical expertise in CFB boiler risk-based maintenance work will enhance the reliability of the power plant’s two boiler units, contributing to the provision of stable and efficient power for the Mindanao region.

Risk-based maintenance prioritizes equipment that carries the highest risk should it fail, for better management efficiency of the power plant.
