Chevron Philippines Inc. (CPI), marketer of Caltex fuels and lubricants, recently signed a contract renewal with Quezon Power Philippines, Limited Co. (QPP) to supply diesel to the Mauban power plants.
QPP’s Mauban Power Project, which is a 460MW net coal fired power plant delivering power to the Luzon grid, is the first build-own-operate project in the Philippines undertaken without any sovereign guarantee from the Philippine government.
Owned by the Electricity Generating Public Co. (EGCO), the first independent power producer (IPP) in Thailand, the Quezon Power Project is also the first base-load IPP in the country that sells electricity to a nongovernment utility in Southeast Asia and the first to privately own a high-voltage transmission line.
“Our partnership with Chevron, which dates back to 2015, has been fruitful, and we are certain that it will only get stronger as we continue to work hand in hand to provide the power needed in Filipino households,” said Frank Thiel, managing director of QPP.
Chevron also supplies fuel to the 500-megawatt San Buenaventura Power Ltd. Co. (SBPL), a partnership between ECGO and the Meralco PowerGen Corporation (MGen), also in Mauban, Quezon.
“The work that QPP and SBPL does is vital and contributes greatly to people’s lives. Chevron deems it is the company’s responsibility to provide both organizations with quality fuel to make sure that both power plants operate without complications. This is a valuable partnership to us, and we are honored to support the commitment of QPP and SBPL to supply Filipinos with energy,” said Billy Liu, country chairman of CPI.
CPI has previously collaborated with other brands and organizations in pursuit of its mission of enabling human energy. As an energy company, Chevron is committed to building strategic partnerships with companies serving the same purpose of improving the lives of Filipinos.
