Hydropower in Bukidnon set for 2017

Hedcor, the largest developer of a run-of-river hydropower plant in the country, is building four desanders for its 68.8-MW Manolo Fortich Hydropower Project in the province of Bukidnon.

One of the components of a typical run-of-river hydropower system is a desander, which is located after the intake weir. As the flow of water slows, sand and other particles settle into the desander.

Water that is diverted to produce power goes back to Tagoloan River in a much cleaner state.

By the third quarter of 2017, Hedcor’s Bukidnon project will tap the rivers of Tanaon, Guihean and Amusig, enough to produce 360-GWh of clean and renewable energy every year for the Mindanao grid. (Hedcor)
