Philippines brings power unit back online following quake

By Staff reporter 19 April 2017

The 500 MW San Lorenzo gas-fired power plant in the Philippines has brought one unit back online following the earthquake that struck the region earlier this month, according to Business Mirror.

First Gen, the company that operates the power plant, is looking to reconnect other gas plants to the Luzon grid.

The priority is to repair the San Lorenzo switchyard that connects the San Lorenzo, San Gabriel and Avion power plants to the transmission lines of the Philippines’ national grid.
