Tamrock reports that Raytheon Constructors is using its computer-aided Maximatic 315-120 three-boom jumbos. Product information from www.tamrock.com January 2000.  Some 8.5 km of tunnel completed, comprising 60% of total. Initial poor rock conditions overcome and project back on schedule, largely due to 95% equipment availability. San Roque Power Corporation was formed by Sithe (50.05%), Marubeni (42.45%) and Kansai Electric (7.5%) to implement and operate the project for which overall cost is $1.2 billion funded one-third by Japan Bank for International Cooperation. Station will generate 345 MW for the Luzon grid under 25-year power purchase agreement using 3 x 115 MW turbines supplied by Toshiba. The Philippine Energy Plan requires another 5/6 hydro schemes similar to San Roque to meet its target of 114,000 MW by 2035. Because the National Power Corporation is to be privatised in the near future, these will be predominantly BOT schemes. March 2000.

Philippines’ Department of Transportation (DOTr) awarded to Mitsubishi Corporation (MC) the EUR1.10 bn (YEN140 bn) contract to deliver the integrated railway systems and trackwork for the Metro Manila Subway stretch extending from East Valenzuela Station in northern Manila to Terminal 3 station, which is connected to Ninoy-Aquino International Airport Terminal 3 in the south of the capital city and to Bicutan Station. The completion of the project is estimated for 2028. The subway is expected to make this journey more than an hour quicker than it currently takes by car. MC is responsible for designing, manufacturing, installing and delivering of all the systems for what will be the Philippines’ first subway line between the northern city of Valenzuela and the southern city of Parañaque.

During a ceremony in Manila on 05/05/2022 the Department of Transportation (DOTr) officially awarded to the TTM Joint Venture, composed of Tokyu Construction Co Ltd (Japan), Tobishima Corporation (Japan) and Megawide Construction Corporation (Philippine-based) the PHP17.75 bn (EUR 321,23 million/USD340 million) Contract Package 104 (CP104) as part of the Metro Manila Subway Project (MMSP) Phase1. The contract involves the construction of two underground stations and tunnels at Ortigas North and South. Construction will start work in July with the completion date set for January 2028.

The network will span 17 stations over 27.5 km, connecting the northern part of the metropolitan area to Ninoy Aquino International Airport. This subway will reduce travel time between Quezon City and the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) from 70 minutes to only 35 minutes, and revitalize the Philippine economy by easing traffic congestion in Metro Manila.

Tokyu's contract will apply to the roughly 3.4 km remaining for the first phase of the project. The joint venture will handle engineering work, tunnel construction and equipment installation, including that of an air conditioning and ventilation system.

To date, the Japanese Government, through the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA), has provided assistance amounting to YEN104 bn (EUR 768,35 million or USD 812.55 million) in the 1st part and YEN253bn (EUR1.87 bn or USD1.98 bn) in the 2nd part.
