The power plant of Ayala Corp. of  Bilyonaryo Jaime Augusto Zobel and Phinma Group of Bilyonaryo Ramon del Rosario Jr. has started commercial operations to bring additional power supply to the Luzon grid.

South Luzon Thermal Energy Corporation (SLTEC) announced the start of operations of its second 135-megawatt unit in Calaca, Batangas which will double the plant’s capacity.

The 50-50 joint venture between Phinma’s Trans-Asia Oil and Energy Development Corp. and Ayala’s AC Energy Holdings Inc. has put up a  2 x 135 megawatts Power Plant in Calaca, Batangas which utilizes clean coal technology or CFB (Circulating Fluidized Bed) to reduce emissions and minimize environmental impact.

Construction of the second unit was completed in the second half of last year and was synchronized to the grid last August 15.

The second unit passed reliability and performance tests early this year.
The first unit which started operations in April last year achieved gross generation output of 553.8  gigawatts per hour  by the end of 2015 but is currently under annual preventive maintenance.
