RP Energy boosts Subic Freeport security

The Redondo Peninsula Energy Inc. (RP Energy), proponent of the 60-megawatt coal-fired thermal plant project in this free port, has pitched in in keeping this free port safe by turning over a “Kasangga” security patrol van to the Subic Bay Metropolitan Authority (SBMA).

The power firm complemented its vehicle donation with various equipment such as rain coats, flashlights, and two-way radios for use of the SBMA Law Enforcement Department (LED).

RP Energy Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Officer Victor Chan handed over the donations to Maj. Lourdesito Cebola and Lt. Alejandro Abarro, who represented the SBMA-LED during a simple turnover ceremony at the LED headquarters.

Chan said the donation is part of RP Energy’s “Kasangga Mo” CSR initiative, which aims to assist in the peace-and-order situation of communities near the firm’s proposed project site at the Redondo peninsula, which is part of the Subic Bay Freeport Zone.

RP Energy Project Manager Grant Smith said the assistance is meant to shorten the deployment and response time of SBMA security personnel and emergency-response units. (Henry EmpeƱo, Business Mirror)
