Energy Development Corporation (EDC) has recommissioned the second of its two Bacman geothermal plants after a shutdown lasting more than a year.
The 55-megawatt Bacman Unit 2 was shut down in early 2013 due to a technical problem.
In a disclosure to the Philippine Stock Exchange, EDC said that the unit has successfully completed its reliability runs and is delivering electricity into the grid.
It, however, remains subject to close monitoring and/or to additional tests, the company added.
Unit 1 was recommissioned in February after being shut down late last year after hairline cracks were spotted in its turbine blades.
EDC said that the targeted delivery dates of the brand-new turbine rotor and diaphragms from Toshiba for both Bacman units are still by the last quarter of 2014 for the first unit and the first quarter of 2015 for the second unit.
The 150-MW Bacman complex is located in the towns of Bacon, Sorsogon and Manito, Albay.
