The positive economic growth of the Philippines drives strong electricity demand. Corresponding to such high demand of electricity, stable operation of existing power plants is one of the practical solution in addition to developing new sources of power supply.

Kansai has developed “K-VaCS,” a total solution service for thermal power plants that creates customer value from new plant planning through to operation and maintenance.
Toshiba ESS will draw on years of expertise in developing and manufacturing power generation equipment to provide digital services that improve the value of the power plants.

By providing Calaca with the high added-valued services that draw on Kansai's knowledge as a utility and Toshiba ESS’s technical expertise, the two companies will contribute to the stable power supply and the continued development in the Philippines.
