Background on Project

In October 2016 Alfredo Yao of the Zest-O Group said he had made a partnership deal with Hong Kong-listed China Energy Engineering Corporation to invest more than US$2 billion in a 2 x 600-megawatt coal-fired power plant in the Philippines. The coal plant was to be built somewhere in Luzon. Zest-O Group would own 70 percent and China Energy Engineering Corporation 30 percent.[1]

As of November 2020 there had been no additional news about this project, and it appears to be cancelled.
