Construction of the P13-billion twin hydroelectric projects of Hedcor, Inc. is being delayed due to geological conditions and continuous rains, company officials said on Tuesday.

Gregorio Jabonilla, Hedcor vice-president for business development, told reporters that the two run-of-river hydro projects have already been delayed for 110 days when their workers encountered problems at their work site in this municipality.

“Our workers are encountering soft rock during our excavation work. The sides of the mountain keep on collapsing on us,” he said.
