Naga Complex OMSC bidding fails anew

23 Nov 2012

The Power Sector Assets and Liabilities Management (PSALM) Corporation on Friday (23 November 2012) declared a failure of bidding for its procurement of the operation and maintenance service contract (OMSC) for the 145.8-megawatt (MW) Naga Power Plant Complex located in Naga City, Cebu.

"Since no bidder submitted a proposal for the Naga complex OMSC, the PSALM Bids and Awards Committee declared the bidding a failure for lack of an interested party," said PSALM President and Chief Executive Officer Emmanuel R. Ledesma, Jr.

PSALM commenced the latest round of bidding for the Naga Complex OMSC on 24 October 2012, with the publication of the Invitation to Bid. Only one bidder, SPC Power Corporation (SPC), expressed interest in joining the procurement project.

The Naga Complex is currently being operated and maintained by SPC through an OMSC that will expire on 25 December 2012.

The Naga Complex consists of three (3) power plants that use a combination of diesel, bunker C oil and coal as fuel. These are the coal-fired 50-MW Cebu Thermal Power Plant 1 and 56.8-MW Cebu Thermal Power Plant 2; and the 39-MW Cebu Diesel Power Plant 1 which consists of six (6) diesel-fed power units with a capacity of 6.5 MW each.
