Philippines’ Repower Energy opens 8th run-of-river hydropower plant

The 1.4 MW Lower Labayat ROR hydropower plant is projected to generate 8 GWh.

Philippine-based renewable energy producer Repower Energy Development Corporation (REDC), the hydropower subsidiary of Pure Energy Holdings Corporation, has launched its newest 1.4 MW run-of-river (ROR) hydropower plant, the eighth of its kind in REDC’s portfolio.

Located in Real, Quezon, between the Upper Labayat and Tibag hydropower plants, the Lower Labayat plant is estimated to generate 8 gigawatts per hour (GWh) annually, utilising the downstream current of the Labayat River.

All three operational ROR hydropower plans are linked to the 69-kV transmission line. India-based manufacturer Flovel Energy provides its electro-mechanical turbines and generators.

“The year 2023 for REDC has been truly a period of aggressive expansion to provide clean energy to under-electrified communities in provinces, and this ROR hydropower plant in Barangay Labayat is a testament to the success we are currently experiencing,” Eric Peter Y. Roxas, president of REDC, stated.

REDC previously opened a 5.8 MW ROR hydropower plant in Quezon. For its pipeline, the company is constructing another 4.5 MW hydropower plant in the same province, an ambitious 20 MW hydropower plant in Bukidnon, and three more hydropower projects in Northern Luzon, all set for a Q4 2025 opening.
