Background on plant

In May 2018 KEPCO announced that it was in talks with a "local partner" and was investing US$2 billion to develop a 1,000-MW coal-fired plant in Sual but did not name the partner.[1] In June 2018, in what appears to be a reference to the same project, SK Engineering & Construction (SKE&C), a subsidiary of South Korean conglomerate SK Group, announced that it had signed a Letter of Intent (LOI) with the Government of the Philippines to build two 600 MW coal-fired power plants on Luzon island at an estimated cost of KRW2.2 trillion (US$1.98 billion).[2]

In January 2019 KEPCO signed a memorandum of understanding with Trans-Asia to acquire the site of Trans-Asia's proposed 3 x 300 MW Baquioen power station and use it for KEPCO's 1 x 1,000 MW Sual KEPCO power station.[3] In August 2019 the Philippine Department of Energy (DOE) listed the plant as a 2 x 500 MW project with a commissioning date of 2024.[4]
