NIA aims to construct hydro power plants in Philippines

Announced Date :  May 18, 2017

The National Irrigation Administration (NIA) aims to construct hydro power projects at its current and upcoming irrigation facilities in Philippines.
The NIA has identified about 357 potential sites for hydro power generation.

NIA Administrator Ricardo R. Visaya said, “This means that the NIA, aside from providing sustainable and efficient irrigation services, can actually be an active partner for power generation."

NIA has also been signed memorandum of agreement (MOA) with Nascent Technologies Corp. for the construction of the 0.4MW Barit irrigation discharge hydro power plant at a investment of PHP27.6m, said Visaya.
