JGC Corporation has awarded Amec Foster Wheeler a contract to design and supply a circulating fluidised bed boiler for a power plant in the Philippines.

JGC Corporation is building the SEC210 Phase 2 project in the Philippines for Sarangani Energy Corp. (SEC), part of Alsons Power. Amec FW will provide the 105 MW boiler as well as auxiliary equipment and onsite technical advisory services for the project.

Amec FW also supplied the first 105 MW unit of the power facility under a contract awarded in 2013.

Once it reaches its full 210 MW capacity in 2019, the plant will provide enough power to meet the needs of more than 6 million people. The electric power generated will serve the needs of the province of Sarangani, including the major city of General Santos.

Alsons Power, a Mindanao-based independent power producer, awarded JGC Corp a $230 million EPC contract to build the second phase of the 210 MW power plant in July 2016.

The first phase of the power plant, located in Maasim, Sarangani Province, began operating in April 2016.
