Solar Tanauan Corporation, a subsidiary of Prime Infrastructure Capital Inc. (Prime Infra), is making remarkable strides in the development of solar power plants in Batangas and Cavite, thanks to cutting-edge project design and execution tools and strategies.
Prime Infra, known for its critical infrastructure ventures in water, sustainable energy, and waste management, celebrated the progress of these solar projects in collaboration with government stakeholders, project suppliers, consultants, and contractors. The groundbreaking ceremony took place in April 2023.
Guillaume Lucci, President and CEO of Prime Infra, expressed pride in employing advanced execution technology for solar projects in the Philippines. He emphasized their commitment to pioneering innovative solutions for a cleaner energy future. Solar Tanauan is leveraging digital twin technology, drone verification, optimized string sizing, and 24/7 quality assurance/quality control monitoring. Additionally, they implemented a Front End Engineering Design (FEED) to streamline procurement and construction phases.
Lucci highlighted the importance of collaborative efforts with the government and communities, which played a pivotal role in the project’s exceptional pace. Notable attendees at the event included Cavite Governor Jonvic Remulla, Batangas Rep. Ma. Theresa Collantes, Tanauan Mayor Sonny Collantes, and key executives from Prime Infra and Solar Tanauan.
Cavite Governor Jonvic Remulla expressed optimism about the positive impact of renewable energy adoption on the country’s future. Batangas Rep. Collantes welcomed the shift to solar energy as an environmentally conscious choice that benefits both the present and future generations. Mayor Collantes emphasized the vital role of public-private collaboration in driving progress and attracting investors to create job opportunities.
The Tanauan and Maragondon solar power plants, with a combined installed capacity of up to 140 megawatts, are poised to generate electricity for over 84,000 households and reduce coal consumption by more than 100,000 tons annually.
This collaborative effort underscores the commitment of Solar Tanauan, Prime Infra, and their partners to accelerate the adoption of clean and sustainable energy solutions in the Philippines.
