Siemens, together with its Japanese consortium partner Marubeni Corporation, has received an order for the delivery of a turnkey combined cycle power plant to Thailand.

The purchaser is the state-owned utility Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT). The gas-fired power plant South Bangkok consists of two units and will feature two H-class gas turbines for the first time in the country. After commissioning in 2019, the power plant with an electrical output of around 1,200 megawatts is expected to power 1.5 million Thai households.

“This marks not only the fifth order from EGAT for the two consortium partners for a power plant in Thailand but is also the first time that Siemens will supply its largest and most efficient gas turbine to the country,” said Willi Meixner, CEO of the Siemens Power and Gas Division. “We have been able to offer a power plant solution with optimized levelized cost of electricity for the customer´s specific requirements. Siemens is looking forward to executing this project successfully and to continue its partnership with EGAT and Marubeni.”

Siemens will deliver the key components consisting of two H-class gas turbines, two generators and two steam turbines. Also included in the scope of supply are two heat recovery steam generators engineered by NEM and the control system. The consortium partner Marubeni is responsible for civil and erection works, cooling tower, high voltage gas insulated switchyard and some balance of plant equipment.

The combined cycle power unit South Bangkok situated 20 kilometers south of Bangkok in the Mueang district is part of the Thai government´s Project Development Plan. The goal of this program is to provide a safe, affordable and environmentally friendly solution for the growing energy demand in the country. Additionally, Thailand is depending more on imported Liquified Natural Gas (LNG). Therefore, the need of highly efficient power plants is gaining momentum.
