KEPCO Ilijan Signs MOU, Turns Over ULABs

Last February 8, KEPCO Ilijan Batangas formalized its support to the Motolite-PBSP Balik Baterya Program through an MOU signing held at their plant in Ilijan, Batangas City.

The plant also turned over 42 tons of ULABs, amounting to almost P1.2M, to support the construction of a computer laboratory room for Pedro Tolentino Memorial National High School.

Signing the MOU were Ramcar, Inc. CSR head, Eman Ragaza, School Principal Lourdes Atienza, PBSP Chief Information Officer Tom Escano, Kepco Ilijan Plant Manager Kyu-Byeng Hwang Operations Manager, Kepco Ilijan Operations Manager Moon Kyung Kim and Ilijan Brgy. Captain Prudencio Cepillo.

In his message to the group, Mr. Kyu-Byeng Hwang thanked the program for the opportunity. "Our participation will not only clean the environment but will also help the community."

Cited by POWER Magazine as one of the top 12 power plants of the world, the Korea Electric Corporation or KEPCO's Ilijan Plant was principally designed to operate as a base-load unit using natural gas sourced from the Malampaya gas fields in Palawan with diesel as back-up fuel.
