SMEC was engaged by First Gen Mindanao Hydro Power Corporation (one of the largest independent power producers in the Philippines) to conduct a feasibility study (Phase One) for the Puyo Hydropower Plant. SMEC completed a review of the feasibility study and the preliminary engineering design services (Phase Two).
SMEC’s services for Phase One included: review of the pre-feasibility report, preparation of an inception report, initial site reconnaissance, hydrological investigations, topographical surveys, geological and geotechnical surveys, social and environmental investigation, a power market study, feasibility level design, cost estimates and economic and financial analysis. SMEC's services for Phase Two included: review of the feasibility hydrologic study and completion of the preliminary engineering design.
This project was in line with the Philippine Government’s drive to reduce dependency on imported energy while promoting the utilisation of indigenous, new and renewable energy resources.
