Bukidnon is a 8,4 MW hydropower project located in Maladugao River in the Province of Bukidnon in Mindanao, and NMS will be the Owner's Engineer during the 20 months construction phase.
The client, UHPC Bukidnon Hydro Power Corporation, is a private Filipino developer. The Project Manager will be Svein Kvaalen, who has more than 40 years of experience from hydropower construction projects worldwide, and the Resident Engineer is Jaime Ferdinand A. Villanueva, a seasoned civil engineer who has worked on the hydro sector for decades.
- We are very excited to be at this point, having finally placed ink on paper. This project is the upper facility of a planned cascading hydropower complex, thus doing well for the client in this one should usher us into the next project in this river, says Mr. Rodolfo 'Ozone' T. Azanza Jr., Managing Director in NMS.
NMS has provided pre-construction advisory services to UHPC since 2016 to finally bring this project to its construction phase.
