MANILA, Philippines — Renewable energy company Alternergy has teamed up with the Quezon 1 Electric Cooperative Inc. (QUEZELCO 1) to facilitate the dispatch of power to the Luzon grid from its Alabat wind farm project.

Alabat Wind Power Corp. (AWPC), the special purpose company developing the project and a subsidiary of Alternergy, has executed a memorandum of agreement with QUEZELCO 1, wherein AWPC will construct and commission a 37-kilometer 69-kilovolt transmission line from the wind farm project to the Hondugua substation of the National Grid Corp. of the Philippines.

QUEZELCO 1, for its part, will construct a 10-megavolt ampere substation.

It will also assist Alternergy in securing the right-of-way for the proposed transmission line to be built, while Alternergy will assist QUEZELCO 1 in securing financing for the proposed substation.

“Our cooperation with QUEZELCO 1 is very crucial to ensure that the renewable supply from the Alabat Wind Farm Project will be transported and delivered to the main grid within the timeline we have committed under the Green Energy Auction 2 (GEA 2) program,” AWPC president Knud Hedeager said.

“Transmission connection is one of the most difficult tasks for any power project. We are pleased to be working hand-in-hand with QUEZELCO 1,” he said.

Last October, the Alabat wind farm project secured approval from the Quezon Provincial Development Council.

“We are working at a very tight timeline and are very delighted by the support from QUEZELCO I and earlier from the local government of Quezon and QUEZELCO 1 to ensure that we achieve this,” Hedeager said.

The project, located on the island of Alabat, Quezon, is expected to issue a notice to proceed construction by the second half of 2024.
