Energies PH, Inc., through its subsidiary San Bernardino Marine Power Company, has signed a contract with Inyanga Marine Energy Group to build the first tidal power plant in Southeast Asia's history. The location will be located on the remote North Samarkapur Island in the Philippines, along the San Bernardino Strait, which is a passage known for its intensity of ocean currents. The engineering, procurement, and construction contracts have been awarded to Inyanga Marine Energy Group.

The 1MW project is expected to be deployed by the end of 2025 and will utilize Inyanga's innovative HydroWing tidal flow technology. The HydroWing tidal flow turbine will be connected to Capul's power grid, which is an off grid island currently relying on a 750 kilowatt diesel power plant. The first phase of the project includes a 1MW tidal power plant, which will be connected to a microgrid combined with solar photovoltaics and energy storage, providing a reliable, sustainable, and cost-effective alternative to fossil power generation.

Antonio Ver, Co Chairman and CEO of Energies PH, stated that when we began building this groundbreaking tidal power plant for the Philippines, our vision was to replicate this in several off site locations across the country, providing electricity to inland regions. We view Kapoor's initial project as a springboard to achieve our goal of helping create sustainable communities across the Philippines, enabling them to better access education, healthcare services, and livelihood opportunities.

Richard Parkinson, CEO of Inyanga Marine Energy Group, said that we look forward to collaborating with Energies PH to deliver this transformation project for the region. Tidal flow energy is the most predictable and reliable form of renewable energy. Our HydroWing technology is at the forefront of innovation, providing a cost-effective solution for obtaining energy from ocean tides.

Jean Christophe Allo, the business manager of Inyanga, added that this exciting project will bring a huge change to Kapoor's remote community. It will bring tidal energy to Southeast Asia for the first time. Due to the inclusion of an onshore storage facility, the tidal turbine will provide continuous power supply 24/7. Currently, Kapoor only has 8 to 16 hours of energy per day and there have been several power outages. We will provide reliable and renewable electricity 24/7.

The other tidal power stations planned for subsequent deployment by San Bernardino Marine Power Company are located on the island of San Antonio, also in the northern part of Samar, and on the island of Calintaan in Matnog, Sosogon.Editor/XingWentao
