Ahunan Power to acquire pumped storage hydropower developer

The project is in the pre-development stage.

Prime Infra’s Ahunan Power, Inc. signed an agreement to hold a majority stake in renewable energy developer Olympia Violago Water and Power, Inc. (OVWPI) which is establishing a 500-megawatt (MW) Wawa Pumped Storage Hydropower Project.

In a statement, Prime Infra said the project located in Rizal province is still in the pre-development stage, with the construction expected to start in 2023.

Prime Infra said the acquisition will boost its renewables’ energy storage capacity by 6,000MWh per day defined by a maximum continuous generation at 15MW for 12 hours.

“Ahunan’s hydropower projects are aligned with the government’s thrust to accelerate the development of renewable energy resources, and reduce heavy reliance on fossil fuels,” said Prime Infra President and CEO Guillaume Lucci.
