Siemens to build combined cycle power plant in Thailand
An international Siemens-led consortium has been awarded a major contract from Thailand for the turnkey erection of a 700 MW combined cycle power plant for the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT). Construction is scheduled for completion to in March 2009.
The new combined cycle power plant, Bang Pakong CCPP 5, to be constructed by a consortium with Marubeni Corp., Japan, headed by Siemens PG, will be part of EGAT’s Bang Pakong power plant, located about 60 kilometers Southeast of Bangkok in the Chachoengsao province.
As general contractor, Siemens will provide two high-efficiency SGT5-4000F gas turbines, one steam turbine along with the associated electrical system and the instrumentation & control system SPPA-T3000. Marubeni will supply two heat recovery steam generators, the balance of plant, civil works and installation services. Primary fuel of the new unit will be natural gas, with oil as secondary fuel.
Siemens PG has been active on the market in Thailand for the past three decades and has executed several projects. In 2005 Siemens PG in a consortium with Marubeni secured the order for turnkey construction of the Songkhla power plant. "Songkhla and the new power plant in Bang Pakong will make an important contribution towards meeting the country’s growing power demand in an economic and environmental compatible manner," said Lothar Herrmann, president and CEO of Siemens Ltd., Thailand.
Presently installed power generating capacity in Thailand is approximately 31,000 megawatts (MW), and demand for electricity is growing by up to 7% annually as metalworking, textile, paper and rubber industries need more power for their production facilities. The Thai government plans to increase the installed capacity to around 44,000 MW by the year 2015.
