Energies PH, Inc. , through its subsidiary San Bernardino Ocean Power Corporation, has entered into an agreement with Inyanga Marine Energy Group to build the first tidal power plant in Southeast Asia .

The first tidal energy plant will be located in Capul

The chosen location will be the remote island of Capul, north of Samar in the Philippines, located along the San Bernardino Strait, renowned for the intensity of its ocean currents. Inyanga Marine Energy Group has been awarded the engineering, procurement and construction contract. This project, with a capacity of 1 MW , is scheduled for implementation by the end of 2025, using Inyanga’s innovative HydroWing tidal stream technology.

The HydroWing tidal current turbines will be integrated into the power grid of Capul, a remote island that currently relies on a 750 kW diesel power plant. The initial phase of the project involves the creation of a 1 MW tidal power generation facility, which will be connected to a microgrid network that will incorporate solar photovoltaics and energy storage. This will provide a reliable, sustainable and cost-effective alternative to fossil fuel-based power generation.

Antonio Ver, co-president and CEO of Energies PH, said: “As we embark on this pioneering tidal power plant for the Philippines, our vision is to replicate it at various off-grid sites across the country to provide inland electricity. We see the initial project in Capul as a catapult to achieve our goal of helping create sustainable communities throughout the Philippines. Electricity reaching families in remote areas allows them to have better access to education, health services and livelihood opportunities”.

Likewise, Richard Parkinson, CEO of Inyanga Marine Energy Group, said: “We look forward to working with Energies PH in the execution of this transformative project for the region. Tidal energy is the most predictable and reliable form of renewable energy. Our HydroWing technology is at the forefront of innovation and provides a cost-effective solution for harnessing the power of the ocean’s tides.”.

For his part, Jean-Christophe Allo, commercial director of Inyanga, adds: “This exciting project will be a game-changer for the remote community of Capul. It will bring tidal energy to the Southeast Asian region for the first time. As the project incorporates an onshore storage facility, the tidal turbines will provide a continuous 24/7 power supply. Right now, Capul has only 8 to 16 hours of power per day, with several blackouts. We will provide reliable, renewable electricity 24/7”.

San Bernardino Ocean Power Corporation plans to deploy additional tidal power generation sites in the future. These places include San Antonio Island, located in northern Samar and Calintaan Island in Matnog, Sorsogon.
