“The Tiwi Binary Power Plant is a facility designed to extract the recoverable heat from the geothermal brine that is processed in a closed-loop system where no harmful gas or liquid is being emitted nor any waste products are discharged to the atmosphere,” APRI President and COO Jeffrey Estrella said. 

“The design will produce an additional 17MW gross generated electricity - an additional source of clean energy to the Luzon Grid.”
