Energy World Corporation (EWC) has announced that several important milestones have been achieved in the construction of the company’s LNG hub terminal and 650 MW combined cycle gas turbine power station in Pagbilao, the Philippines.
In May 2015, the company completed the concreting of the LNG tank roof; erection of the first three LNG loading arms on the jetty; and installation of the second 200 MW gas turbine and generator.

GTT is constructing the 130 000 m3 LNG storage tank for the project, which will be equipped with the company’s GST® Membrane Full Integrity System. GTT is supervising the detailed design of the storage tank containment systems, providing technical assistance on site during installation, and will also assist EWC during the whole tank life.

LNG imported to the terminal will be used for power generation, industrial use, city gas, transport and vehicle fuel, bringing clean energy to the Philippines at an economical price. It will also offer an opportunity to reduce the country’s reliance on coal-fired power stations in the future.
Once completed, the terminal will enable LNG to be distributed throughout the Philippines.
