DP CleanTech will build the 12-megawatt power plant for AseaOne Power Corp., the Beijing-based company said today in an e-mailed statement. The value of the contract wasn’t disclosed. Construction of the plant in the Aklan province is expected to start in October and it may begin working in April 2014, according to the statement.
