The company envisions to be a steward in preserving the environment, commits to manage the aspects of its operations that may have significant impact to the environment such as air emissions, waste water discharges, as well as solid and hazardous waste generation. This station utilizes the state of the art environmental control technologies in the market which are at par with the best in the world today. Reel-time monitoring is also implanted in the station to determine the efficiency of the station’s control system. The air, water, soil, vegetation and wildlife and also as public health in the Stations vicinity are constantly being monitored to ensure the continued protection and reservation. Monitoring activities involve a Monitoring Team Composed of representatives from the Department of Natural Resources (DENR), Local Government Unit, Non-Government Organization and Specialized Engineers from Daku Coal-Fired Power Plant Inc.
In 1978, forging strong partnership with the local stakes holders, Daku Coal-Fired Power Plant Incorporated uplift lives. At the leading edge of its programs for sustainable development are its employees, 100 percent (100%) are Filipinos, of which 25 percent (25) are coming from the Province of Surigao De Norte.
Daku Coal-Fired Power Plant(DCFPP) has three coal-powered units with a combined output of more than 900 megawatts. DCFPP started its commercial operations in 1975 and up to this day, it continues to supply power across Mindanao. The management ensures that there will be balance between ecology and economics in producing sustainable and affordable energy. Some of its efficiency improvements include:
Design and Combustion Technology
Cost Effectiveness (Affordability)
With a generating power of 900 MW, Daku Coal-fired Power Plant is one of the leading coal-fired and cost-effective power plant in Mindanao. In response for the island’s needs, DCFPP was built in 1975 to ease the on-going crisis on energy resources. One of the founder, Reniel C. Cena- a graduate of Master’s Degree in Structural Engineering in Cambridge University in London developed the whole project with the help of his colleagues and investors from other countries.
The following are the primary services offered by Daku Coal-fired Power Plants:
1. To serve regional electric utilities across Mindanao.
2. To transmit network with a vision for nation's power grid.
3. To generate power for most efficient and most innovative generation fleets.
4. To provide electric supply to customers in deregulated electricity markets.
5. To transport coals and other cargoes.

Large conveyor belts move coals to the pulverization process.
The coals are then pulverize to talcum size powder for efficient burning.
FURNACE and BOILER
Highly purified water, pumped through pipes inside the boiler, is turned into steam by the heat. The steam reaches temperatures of up to 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit and pressures up to 3,500 pounds per square inch, and is piped to the turbine.
The byproduct of the combustion of coals includes hazardous gases. In this step the gas are treated to remove those hazardous gases.
The treated gases are then piped into the high stack, isolating the smoke from the working area.
The enormous pressure of the steam pushing against a series of giant turbine blades turns the turbine shaft. The turbine shaft is connected to the shaft of the generator, where magnets spin within wire coils to produce electricity.
After doing its work in the turbine, the steam is drawn into a condenser. In this important step, millions of gallons of cool water from a nearby source (such as a river or lake) are pumped through a network of tubes running through the condenser. The cool water in the tubes converts the steam back into water that can be used over and over again in the plant.
Hot water from the condenser are then cooled by this massive cooling stack.
The rotation of the turbine also rotates the shaft of the generator producing electricity
The produced electricity from the generator is then converted to higher voltage preparing it for the grid.
High voltage electricity from the step-up transformer are then distributed around the area by the transmission lines.
Description of Process
Ash Catchment System
Ash is also a byproduct of combustion of coals. In this step ash is collected from the system preparing it for disposal or for other use.
The coals are then pulverize to the fineness of talcum for efficient combustion.
