Description ACQUISITION AND REHABILITATION OF THE MASINLOC COAL- FIRED THERMAL POWER PLANT
Objectives and Scope
Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The Project is fully in line with ADB s country and energy sector strategies. The Project will immediately complement ADB s Power Sector Development Program s objectives of improving the country s fiscal imbalance by catalyzing privatization of an NPC-owned power plant and bringing in revenues to the Government. The Project will also help to improve the investment climate by increasing the reliability of generating capacity for the commercial and industrial centers of the country. Successful acquisition and operation of the Masinloc plant by AES, a reputable and experienced independent power producer, will boost market confidence and induce follow-on privatization of NPC s assets and new entry to the market. The Project will enhance competition in the Philippine market for electricity generation and, in the long run, help to drive electricity prices down.
