Ilijan Combined-Cycle Power Plant
The National Power Corporation (NPC) owns the 1,200 MW Natural Gas Combined Cycle Power Station at Ilijan, Batangas. NPC awarded the power plant project under an Energy Conversion Agreement to a local subsidiary of Korea Electric Power Company (KEILCO), the facility operator, in December 1996. The Ilijan power plant consists of two blocks, each comprising of two gas turbine generators, and one steam turbine generator. Each gas turbine generator has a nominal expected gross rated output of 202 MW and 234 MW for each of the turbine generators. A single 500Kv transformer takes the output of the Block’s two gas turbine generator where the other one receives steam turbine generator output. The power station uses diesel as back-up fuel. Commercial operation of the power plant was in June 5, 2002.
San Miguel Energy Corporation who was declared as the highest bidder last 16 April 2010 won the administration of the 1,200- MW Ilijan. The Ilijan power plant is operated by the Korea Electric Power Corporation (KEPCO), through KEPCO Ilijan Corporation, under a build-operate-transfer contract that will expire in 2022.
Sta. Rita Combined Cycle Gas Turbine (CCGT) Power Station
The Sta. Rita 1,000 MW CCGT Power Plant owns by First Gas Power Corporation located at Sta. Rita, Batangas City. The facility is being operated by Siemens Power Corporations, Inc.
The Sta. Rita power plant consists of four (4) units with a plant rated capacity of 270 MW each when operating on liquid fuel (248.35 MW on gas). Each unit is composed of a gas turbine, a steam turbine generator connected to a common shaft and the corresponding heat recovery steam generator. The plant also includes a transmission line which interconnects the Sta. Rita power plant to the Calaca substation.
The plant was operated on liquid fuel (gas oil, naptha, condensate) until the end of 2001. Commercial operations using natural gas as the primary fuel commenced on January 1, 2002. Liquid fuel was used as back-up fuel thereafter.
San Lorenzo CCGT Power Station
The San Lorenzo 500 MW CCGT Power Station facility is owned by First Gas Power Corporation and the facility is operated by Siemens Power Corporations, Inc. The plant is located at Sta. Rita, Batangas City adjacent to Sta. Rita Power Plant. The plant also share common facilities being used by the Sta. Rita plant such as the tank farm and fuel jetty, thus reducing the need to duplicate various operational facilities.
The plant consists of two (2) units with a plant rated capacity of 260 MW each when operating in liquid fuel (252.5 MW on gas). Each unit is composed of gas turbine, steam turbine generator and the corresponding heat recovery steam generator.
San Lorenzo power plant started using liquid fuel (gas oil, naptha, condensate) for testing and commissioning by late 2001. The plant started using natural gas on commissioning stage in February 2002. Commercial operation was in October 1, 2002.
