Mariveles on its way to industrial dev’t

Jan 2, 2018 @ 5:32

The provincial government of Bataan is shaping the historic town of Mariveles as the next business hub.

The provincial legal office is hopeful because of the expected launching of the first pipe coating factory and the expansion of supercritical coal-fired power plants in the coastal village of Alas-Asin in Mariveles, Bataan.

The supercritical power plants are among coal-fired facilities that use high-efficiency, low-emission technologies. This means they harness more heat out of the coal compared to conventional coal-fired plants.

According to Luis Gonzales, a prominent real estate broker and appraiser, a European firm is seriously considering the construction of the first labor-intensive Russian–owned pipe coating plant in Mariveles because of the town’s accessibility to sea route and land transportation.

The Russian factory is expected to generate employment, improve the coating techniques and other opportunities for domestic and export industry requirements.

The $1.7 billion worth of GNPower generator, meanwhile, is also expected to usher in a more robust economy in the industrial sector.

The power plant expansion will shoot up the attributable capacity of GNPower to 1,600 MW. With this, the company would be able to supply the increasing power demand of Luzon Island and Visayas.
