Toby Anderson Herbert Smith Freehills

The world’s second-largest geothermal power producer has finalised contracts for the engineering, procurement and construction of its $229 million geothermal power plant in the Philippines.

Firms: Herbert Smith Freehills (Energy Development Corporation); in-house counsel (South Korea's Hyundai Engineering and Galing Power & Energy Construction)

Deal: Hyundai and Galing will engineer, procure and construct a 31MW Bac-Man 3 geothermal power plant for Energy Development Corporation.

Value: Approximately $229 million

Area: Contract

Key players: Partner Toby Anderson (pictured) led the Herbert Smith Freehills team, assisted by senior associates Daniel Ficyk and Adeline Pang.

Deal significance: Based in Manila, Energy Development Corporation (EDC) is the world's second-largest producer of geothermal power with a portfolio comprising more than 1,169MW of integrated geothermal projects, as well as hydro, solar and wind power assets across the Philippines.

EDC has finalised contracts with South Korea's Hyundai Engineering and its Philippine affiliate, Galing Power & Energy Construction for the engineering, procurement and construction of EDC's latest power plant.

The $229 million project is a 31MW Bac-Man 3 geothermal power plant in Sorsogon Province in the Philippines, expected to be operational by the end of 2017.

Mr Anderson said: “We're delighted to have worked with EDC again on this latest project, assisting them with the firm's extensive knowledge of clean and renewable energy projects and EPC expertise.”

He added: “EDC's network of sustainable plants and projects in often difficult terrain is an impressive achievement. We look forward to working with EDC to extend and develop that network in the years ahead.”
