Prime Infra uses advanced tech for 140-MW solar project in Cavite, Batangas

Razon-led Prime Infrastructure Capital Inc. is utilizing modern technology to fast track the implementation of its solar power plants in the provinces of Batangas and Cavite.

In a statement on Friday, Prime Infra said its subsidiary Solar Tanauan Corporation is integrating “digital twin technology, drone verification of progress, optimized string sizing, and 24/7 quality assurance/quality control monitoring both at factory and at site.”

Solar Tanauan also conducted a Front End Engineering Design (FEED) to streamline the procurement and construction phases, packaged contracting and owner supplied materials allowing each party to focus on their specialties, optimized risk allocation, and uses software for simplifying complex earthwork assessment for terrain-following layouts, according to Prime Infra.

In April, Prime Infra announced the beginning of construction of its solar power plants in Tanauan, Batangas and Maragondon, Cavite.

The Tanauan and Maragondon solar power plants will have an installed gross capacity of up to 140 MW with total annual generation capacity estimated at 202 gigawatt hours which is expected to power over 84,000 households and displace over 100,000 tons of coal per year.

“We are proud to have the most advanced execution technology and strategy for a solar power project here in the Philippines. This celebration is a testament of Prime Infra’s approach in deploying renewable energy projects and reaffirms our commitment to pioneer innovative solutions towards a clean energy future,” said Prime Infra president and CEO Guillaume Lucci.

“The reason we’ve reached this point is also because we work extremely collaboratively with the government and with the communities; and that’s not simply us as a developer but applies to all our partners and suppliers. I think that has been really the key to the exceptional pace of our project,” added Lucci.

The Prime Infra Group has a pipeline of renewable energy projects in different stages of development with a total gross installed capacity of approximately 5,700 MW of solar generation plus 4,000MWh (minimum) energy storage system.—LDF, GMA Integrated News
