Trans-Asia Power Generation Corp. (TPGC) is in the final stages of assessing the viability of a 20-megawatt (MW) wind power project in Guimaras province.
 
Trans-Asia Oil and Energy Development Corp. (TA Oil), TPGC's sister company, will undertake the project.
 
TPGC president Francisco Viray said the wind power project is part of the expansion of the group in Guimaras.
 
TA Oil has an existing 3.4-MW bunker C-fired power plant in Jordan, Guimaras.
 
"The company is planning to expand its operations in the Guimaras province by putting up a wind farm power project in the area. Wind power project is about 10-MW to 20-MW, we have just finished our wind assessment last month," Viray said.
 
Viray said the initial result of the assessment released last May this year was quite positive.
 
"So far it's good. We will be going into pre-feasibility study some time in the second semester," he said.

Trans-Asia is the power development of Philippine Investment Management Inc. (Phinma) group.
