ThomasLloyd lays the foundations for a second biomass power plant, and inaugurates a further two solar power plants.

ThomasLloyd laid the foundations for South Negros BioPower, a biomass power plant in the Philippines with output of 25 megawatts (MW). The project, located in the south of Negros Island, is the second power plant for the investment and advisory firm, specialising in the infrastructure sector in Asia. It is scheduled to begin commercial operation, generating renewable electricity for approximately 265,000 people, by the end of 2017, using crop residue from the local agricultural sector. After commissioning, South Negros BioPower will also create more than 3,000 new, permanent jobs, both at the plant itself and in local agriculture, and will reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by 85,498 tonnes per annum.
