Southeast Asia’s 1st tidal energy plant to be deployed in the Philippines

The project will be installed in late 2025.

Energies PH affiliate San Bernardino Ocean Power Corp partnered with Inyanga Marine Energy Group to develop the first tidal power generation plant in Southeast Asia in the Philippines with a one-megawatt capacity.

In a statement, Inyanga Marine said the project will be located at the Capul Island of Northern Samar along the San Bernardino Strait which is known for strong marine currents.

“As we embark on this pioneering tidal power plant for the Philippines, our vision is to replicate this in several off-grid sites all over the country to provide electricity in the hinterlands,” said Energies PH Co-chairman and CEO Antonio Ver.

“We see the initial project in Capul as a catapult to achieving our goal of helping create sustainable communities across the Philippines. The electric power that reaches families in remote areas enables them to have better access to education, health services as well as livelihood opportunities,” he added.

The project will utilise Inyanga Marine’s HydroWing tidal stream technology which will be connected to the network of Capul which relies on a 750-kilowatt diesel power plant.

It will be connected to a microgrid network with solar and energy storage in the first stage of the project.

Other planned tidal power generation plants are in San Antonio Island in Northern Samar, and Calintaan Island in Matnog, Sorsogon.
