Pöyry gets EPC contract from GLEDC

17 June 2017

Global Luzon Energy Development Corporation (GLEDC) has awarded Pöyry with the owner's engineer assignment for EPC selection for its supercritical power plant in La Union, Luzon, Philippines.

The 2x300 megawatt coal-fired power plant project will contribute to the stability in supply of electricity to the country by providing adequate and reliable power to its customers, encompassing industrial, commercial and domestic requirements. Such supercritical boilers operate at very high pressures making it more efficient than standard power plants and directly leads to reduction of costs and CO2 emissions.

Poyry, as GLEDC's project development partner, will deliver technical advisory services to assist in developing a solid engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract that will be cost-competitive and reliable.
