Manolo Fortich Hydro 2 project achieves safety milestone

Hedcor Bukidnon and its contractor, Sta Clara International Construction attained one million safe man-hours with no lost time accident in building the Manolo Fortich Hydro 2 Project in the Province of Bukidnon.

1,000,000 safe man-hours is the equivalent of 672 individuals working safely for 400 days.

It is the policy of Hedcor to provide and maintain safe and healthy working conditions.  “No job shall be considered satisfactorily unless the team member has followed every precaution and safety rule to protect themselves and fellow workers,” says Rene Ronquillo, the President and COO of Hedcor.

The Manolo Fortich Hydro 1 with a capacity of 43.4 MW is 46% complete, as of this writing. It is contracted by JV Angeles Construction Corporation. Meanwhile, 25.4-MW Manolo Fortich 2 is pegged at 27% with Sta Clara as the contractor. The two plants will be commissioned by the second quarter of 2017.
