SMC Malita,Davao Coal-Fired Power Plant Project

The Environmental Impact Statement report for the 600MW Circulating Fluidized Bed (CFB) Coal-Fired Power Plant Project was prepared by Apercu. The project is located within a 100-hectare property in Barangay Culaman, Malita, Davao del Sur. The project aims to ease the power supply shortage in the Mindanao grid. It also intends to provide a long-term solution to the rotating brown-outs in the Mindanao area.
