LNG to solve power crisis

May 8, 2023 | News | 0 comments

The country’s precarious power supply situation just received a major shot in the arm after San Miguel Global Power’s 1,200-megawatt Ilijan power plant took delivery of the country first shipment of liquified natural gas (LNG). San Miguel Corp. president Ramon Ang said they are moving closer to reintegrating the plant, which earlier suffered from lack of natural gas supply after the Malampaya contract lapsed, into the grid. Ang pointed out that with this, they can augment the country’s power supply through the summer months and beyond. Together with SMC’s nationwide battery energy storage system (BESS), he said this latest development is also crucial to supporting the transition to renewable power sources while ensuring sufficient, reliable supply for consumers and the growing economy.  | by IDDEN AGENDA – Mary Ann LL.
