The Casecnan Multi-Purpose Irrigation and Power Project
The Casecnan Project is a combined irrigation and hydroelectric power project in the northern part of Luzon, the Philippines’ main island. It collects water from the Casecnan and Taan Rivers and transports it through a 26-kilometer transbasin tunnel to the existing Pantabangan Reservoir. Its power component provides approximately 150 megawatts of hydroelectric capacity to the important Luzon grid. The project also irrigates 35,000 hectares of agricultural lands and stabilizes the water supply to 102,000 hectares of existing irrigated areas.
Casecnan was developed and is owned and operated by CE Casecnan Water and Energy Co. Inc., an affiliate of CalEnergy International, for a period of 20 years, after which ownership will be transferred to the Philippine government at no cost.
The principals of Trilateral Pacific were integrally involved in the development, construction and management of the Casecnan Project during their time at Calenergy.
