EDC Launches 29 MW Palayan Bayan Geothermal Power Plant


The Energy Development Corporation (EDC) has launched a 28.9 MW Palayan Bayan binary geothermal power plant (PBGPP) in Albay, Philippines.

This new plant, costing around USD120 million will expand the existing 140 MW BacMan facility. The plant is synchronised with the Luzon grid in January 2024 and is expected to generate 253,000 MWh annually, reducing CO2 by 72,200 tonnes annually. Construction works on the PBGPP began in mid 2021, with Turboden selected as the ORC power plant supplier. The plant uses waste heat from the 120 MW Palayan Bayan 1 flash geothermal power plant to produce electricity without additional steam.
