Aboitiz Power Corp.’s 340-megawatt coal-fired power plant in Barangay Bato, Toledo City, Cebu is now 95-percent completed and expected to deliver power to the grid this year.

Construction of the baseload power plant started in April 2015. The project employs more than 2,000 workers on-site.

The Therma Visayas Inc.’s energy project, Aboitiz Power’s second baseload power plant to feature a coal dome, recently achieved 20 million safe man-hours with zero lost time injury.

“Reaching this new milestone demonstrates the team’s dedication to safety as well as consistency in pursuing an incident and injury-free workplace,” said Aboitiz Power Coal Business Unit president and chief operating officer Sebastian Lacson.

TVI said it was committed to ensuring that every person on site was safe while working. “TVI is fully committed to ensuring that every person at site, organic or contractor, returns home safely,” Lacson said.
