Background on 150 MW expansion

In 2010, the following report described a planned expansion of the facility:[4]

AboitizPower Corp. and its partners in STEAG State Power Inc., operator of the 232 megawatt coal plant at the Phiividec Industrial Estate in Villanueva, Misamis Oriental have decided to develop a third unit of about 150 MW capacity adjacent to the existing facility. Partners Evonik Steag GmbH of Essen, Germany, La Fiipina Uy Gongco Corp. and AboitizPower agreed to keep their shareholdings in the same proportions of 51 percent, 15 percent, and 34 percent, respectively, in the new company that created for the additional capacity. STEAG State Power sells its output to the National Power Corp., but the new venture will sell electricity under long-term sales agreements to utilities or industries.

The Philippines Department of Energy (DOE) August 2013 status report on power projects did not mention the project. Apparently, the project has been cancelled.[5] A February 2015 article on the repair of the plant's existing two units did not mention the expansion.[6]
