Who We Are
Bac-Man Geothermal Inc (BGI) is an indirect wholly owned subsidiary of Energy Development Corporation (EDC).
On May 5, 2010, BGI acquired the 150-MW Bac-Man Geothermal Power Plant located in Bacon, Sorsogon City and Manito, Albay in the Bicol region.
The Bac-Man Geothermal Power Plant (BMGPP) facilities consist of two (2) steam power generating plant complexes. The Bac-Man 1 facility originally included two (2) 55-MW units (Bac-Man Units 1 and 2), which were both commissioned in 1993.
Bac-Man 2 facility, on the other hand, originally comprised two (2) 20-MW units namely the Cawayan plant (Bac-Man Unit 3) located in Barangay Basud and the Botong plant in Osiao, Sorsogon City.
Following the plant acquisition, EDC conducted studies on possible slope remedial measures at Botong but concluded that the measures to mitigate the risk of further landslides would be too costly and futile as they would not eliminate the risk of further damage to the Botong plant due to landslides. Thus, EDC decided to relocate the Botong power plant equipment to the Cawayan site (Bac-Man Unit 3).
BGI, then, focused its efforts on the complete rehabilitation of the Company’s power plants.
After performing extensive rehabilitation and retrofit works on the BMGPP facilities, including the complete replacement of Bac-Man Units 1 and 2 steam turbines rotors and diaphragms with brand new Toshiba units, and the replacement of the Bac-Man 3 generator with a brand new unit, the Company now is able to operate reliably with a re-rated capacity of 140 MW. The additional 10 MW capacity produced by the Bac-Man Units 1 and 2 was certified by the Department of Energy (DOE), the Board of Investments (BOI), and the Energy Regulatory Commission ERC.
BMGPP’s 140 MW gross capacity is being sold through a combination of bilateral contracts with industrial and contestable customers, distribution utilities and the spot market.
