Angat Hydropower Corp., the joint venture of San Miguel Corp. and Korean Water Resources Corp., is embarking on a $50-million rehabilitation of the 218-MW Angat power plant in Norzagaray, Bulacan. The plant consists of four main units, each with a 50-MW capacity.  The units were commissioned between 1967 and 1968. To augment its operation, the plant uses five auxiliary units with a total capacity of 46 MW. The 18-MW auxiliary units 1, 2 and 3 are part of the sale to Angat Hydro when it was privatized while the 28-MW auxiliary units 4 and 5 are owned by the Metropolitan Waterworks and Sewerage System. It is now preparing the financing aspect of the power plant upgrade.  Work will start next year.
