14.1 MW Run of river hydroelectric project
Samar has been one of the provinces of the Philippines with some of the costliest price of electricity.
Most of the source of power in the province comes from coal power plants which are both expensive and non-adherent to safeguarding the environment.
In the recent years, a move towards green energy has grown and Samar needs these additional power supply to ensure not only household needs but also economic growth in the province. IRAYA Energy Corporation has been the proponent of one of the planned hydroelectric power plants in Samar. The project is aimed to produce 14.1 Megawatts of energy through the use of the natural resources of the province which is water. The project is situated in San Rafael, Taft, Eastern Samar.
Alsina Philippines took part in this groundbreaking project by providing formwork to solve their problems in providing Alisply Wall forms for the walls of the head race and also shoring and decking for the top slabs of these head race structures. Alsina’s CL40 is used as the shoring and HT20 Beams (Wood Beams) as the decking for the project.
The project is still on-going but upon its completion it can help alleviate the power shortage and help in lowering the cost of electricity in the province.
