PRESS RELEASE

AREVA and its partner Engcon Energy Philippines have been awarded a contract by the Green Innovations For Tomorrow Corporation, an independent power producer, for the construction of a biomass power plant in the Philippines, located 200 kilometers north of Manila.

Using rice husk, the plant will have an installed capacity of 12 MW and will be able to supply electricity to around 10,000 households per year.
