Aseagas project celebrates safety milestone

Aseagas’s 8.8-megawatt biomass power project has achieved a milestone of half million man-hours without lost time accident. The project employs 31 organic team members and 370 workers from different contractors. “This achievement reflects the company’s commitment to safety in its workplace, employees, suppliers, and contractors involved in the project. We will strive to achieve the next safety milestone until project completion,” Aseagas COO Juan F. Alfonso said.

The Batangas-based power facility will be installed with GE Jenbacher gas engines. It will utilize organic waste from sugar cane and molasses from a nearby alcohol distillery. Aside from electricity, the plant will have by-products of CO2 that can be sold to beverage companies, achieving complete “no additional waste” production. The plant will be able to generate power for an estimated 22,000 homes.
