Sta. Cruz IPs accept new infra projects from Hedcor

STA. CRUZ, Davao del Sur, Oct. 27 -- Hedcor Tudaya, Inc. recently turned over a concreted road and covered court projects to the Bagobo-Tagabawa community in Barangay Kapatagan, Davao del Sur, in fulfillment of its memorandum of agreement.

Rolando Pacquiao, Hedcor vice president for Mindanao Operations, said the company has allotted P1.6 million for the road concreting and P1.4 million for the construction of covered court.

“By providing the needs of our host community like basic infrastructures, we are heading towards inclusive growth with them,” Pacquiao said.

The blessing of the facilities was presided over by Father Joel Coledia. Kapatagan barangay chair Santiago Morales Jr. with the barangay council joined the turnover rites.

The covered court was completed in the span of 60 days.  The project was awarded to a local contractor, the Continental Industrial Builders and Traders Corp. 

Meanwhile, the 158-meter concrete road covers steep parts of the access road that were opened during the Tudaya hydro construction.

Morales thanked Hedcor for fulfilling its promises. He said that they are grateful for the support the company is giving.

He added that the covered court would be of various uses for the people in the barangay.

Last May, the Tudaya hydro 1 and 2 plants were inaugurated. The plants are expansion of the existing 42.5MW Sibulan hydropower plants.

In total, Tudaya hydro plants produce about 13.2MW of clean and renewable energy.  

Hedcor, a wholly owned subsidiary of AboitizPower, operates 21 run-of-river hydropower plants in Benguet, Davao City, Davao del Sur and Ilocos Sur with a total installed capacity of 170 megawatts. (Hedcor/PR)
