The North Bangkok Combined Cycle Gas-Fired Power Plant (CCGP) is located in Bang Kurai district in the Nonthaburi province of Thailand. The gas-fired power plant is owned and operated by the state-owned utility Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT).

Starting commercial operations in June 2016, Block 2 makes the North Bangkok CCGP one of the largest power plants in Thailand. It also contributes to the national target of 55,000MW generating capacity by 2030, while minimising CO2 emissions.

North Bangkok CCGP Block 2 is the first commercial operation in the world to use the upgraded GT26 turbines. The upgraded GT26 features achievable efficiency of more than 60% in combined cycle operation. It also offers greater performance as it is capable of generating 350MW in less than 15 minutes. It’s most distinguishing aspect, however, is the MXL2 feature incorporated for greater operational flexibility, which gives the operator the option to switch between two modes of operation (namely M and XL) on-line as needed.

The Gulf JP UT Power Station (GUT) was developed by GULF JP Company limited, owned by Electric Power Development Company limited (J-Power) and Gulf Energy Development Company limited. The plant is located in Rojana Industrial Park, U Thai District, Ayutthaya Province in Thailand, about 80 kilometer from Bangkok.

Gulf JP UT Power Plant consists of two 850 MW combined cycle power plants, in total gross capacity of 1,700 MW. This state of the art multi-shaft combined cycle plant utilizes the M701F gas turbine technologies from Mitsubishi Hitachi Power System (MHPS) with the dry low NOx combustion system. The NOx and SOx emission is controlled under 70 and 10 ppm, respectively. The equipment is located inside the noise reduction enclosures and the silencers at exposed exist. The noise emission is, therefore, also controlled by 70 dB at fence boundary.

The plant can use both natural gas and diesel oil. The natural gas is supplied by PTT Public Company Limited (PTT) under Gas Sale Agreement for 25 years. The GUT has entered into commercial operation for the block 1 since June 2015 and December 2015 for block 2, respectively. The power plants are connected into the 500 kV double circuit transmission line and all produced electricity after internal use is solely sold to Electricity Generating Authority
Thailand (EGAT) under the Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) of 1600 MW for 25 years.

In every kWh of sale, GUT contributes 1 Satang into the Power Development Fund. The fund is regulated by Energy Regulatory Commission (ERC). In addition, we are as the part of local community supporting the local sustainable development activities and living quality improvement.

Natural Energy Development Co., Ltd was founded in year 2008 as a power company in Thailand with its aim to develop renewable energy projects in the region. The company owns and operates two solar power plants with the total installed capacity of 63 MW.

The 55 MW Lopburi Solar Power Plant and the 8 MW Wang Ploeng Solar Power Plant have started commercial operation and delivered clean electricity to the grid since 2011 and 2013 respectively. The 63MW NED Solar Power Plant sells the generated electricity output 55 MW from Lopburi Solar Power Plant to Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT) and 8 MW from Wang Ploeng Solar Power Plant to Provincial Electricity Authority (PEA).

The NED Solar Power Plant is located in Khok Samrong District of Lopburi Province in Thailand. It is one of the world’s largest thin-film solar power plants with more than 630,000 thin-film solar photovoltaic panels installed on 1,400 Rais (183 hectares) of land. The generated electricity output of NED Solar Power Plant is sufficient for consumption of approximately 70,000 Households (900 Watt/Household) and important in reduction of fuel import for electricity generation more than 60,000 Tons/Year.
