So how does a dam in the Philippines look like? The first thing presented to me arriving at the Binga hydropower plant was this view of her stunning surroundings.
The Binga HPP is in itself surrounded by a community, and if you’re lucky you get to join in on a Boodle Fight!
The main aim here is to eat as quickly as you can and steal as much food as possible from your opponents – tricky for a gringo who’s not used to eating with his hands! Luckily there was plenty for all.
The day-to-day activities down here are mostly carried out in the Power House, and here you see the generator floor – 90 metres below ground. Good possibilities to get in proper shape by taking the stairs.
Finally, after a day at the plant you’re rewarded with a sunset that would cast a favourable light on even the most disputed monstermast.
Over and out from the Philippines for now. If you’d like to know more about the project, you can read about it here: SN Power, Binga project
