PSALM’s settlement of indemnities for PB 103 Oil Spill
Last 02 August 2017, PSALM successfully closed the sale of the structures, plant equipment, auxiliaries, and accessories of the decommissioned 850-megawatt STPP in Muntinlupa City to the Riverbend Consolidated Mining Corporation (Riverbend).
To facilitate the seamless transition and privatization of the asset, PSALM ensures its compliance to relevant environmental, health and safety laws. Part of the contract stipulated by PSALM directs Riverbend to undertake and perform the dismantling and clean-up on the purchased asset, which includes clearing it from toxic substances and hazardous wastes and materials.
As a Social Recovery Project, the monitoring of the rehabilitation of the hydroelectric power plants is undertaken to ensure the health and safety of affected areas, communities, and plant personnel through compliance with stipulated agreements, relevant laws and regulations. This is pursuant to the DENR Administrative Order No. 2017-15 and Joint Memorandum of Agreement which PSALM entered into with its stakeholders.
Activities conducted by the monitoring team include quarterly ocular site inspection, monitoring of water quality, air quality and noise monitoring, soil monitoring, freshwater and terrestrial ecology monitoring, and Socio-economic/Resettlement Action Plan.
Compensation checks are continuously processed and distributed to individuals, families, and enterprises who were affected by the Power Barge (PB) 103 Oil Spill at the height of Super Typhoon Yolanda in 08 November 2013. The 32-megawatt PB 103 was then moored at Brgy. Botongon in the municipality of Estancia, Iloilo when it was swept aground due to strong winds and storm surge.
PSALM’s settlement of third-party claims is based on the recommendation of the Government Service Insurance System (GSIS) adjuster, Claims Services International Adjusting Co., and endorsement of GSIS.
