Blue Circle, CleanTech to build PH offshore wind power

The Blue Circle, a renewable energy company in Southeast Asia, and its partner CleanTech Global Renewables were awarded their first wind energy service contract for an offshore project in the Philippines.

Located in Bulalacao, Oriental Mindoro, the project will install 100 turbines with a unit capacity of 12 MW for a total of 1,200 MW and will constitute the largest offshore wind project in the country.

In a joint statement, the parties said this is in concordance with the roadmap being prepared by the Department of Energy under the assistance of the World Bank Group, which has estimated that the potential of offshore wind power in the Philippines is over 170,000 MW.

Cleantech CEO Aboy Castro said the offshore project, with a landbank of around 40,095 hectares, will be of significant size for both floating and bottom fixed wind turbines.
