CEMEX gains freedom to choose energy supplier, signs with MPPCL

Powering upCement manufacturer CEMEX Philippines has jumped at the opportunity to make their cement-making processes more efficient and more effective by utilizing the Department of Energy’s (DOE) new open access regime.

This new regime, which was officially implemented this year, allows large power users to choose their own energy suppliers. For CEMEX, the best partner is AES Philippines through Retail Electricity Supply Business Segment, Masinloc Power Partners Company Limited (MPPCL). The partnership, formalized by a ceremonial contract signing at Shangri-La Makati, allows CEMEX to obtain and sustain all its electricity requirements from MPPCL.

The three-year contract gives CEMEX the freedom and flexibility to customize their energy consumption costs especially in peak hours of their operations, ultimately making it cost effective. CEMEX’s Solid Cement Plant in Antipolo will be benefitting from this partnership. More optimized plant operations are expected with the new energy source.
