GE signs Thai CHP plant service agreement

GE, in conjunction with Bangkok-based Bangpa-In-Cogeneration has announced the signing of a $33m service agreement to maintain two GE LM6000-PD aeroderivative gas turbines at a 110 MW gas-fired cogeneration plant in Thailand’s Ayutthaya Province.

Under the agreement, GE will provide inspection and planned maintenance services for 12 years.

Thailand’s SPP Program promotes investment in smaller-scale power plants of two types: cogeneration plants such as Bangpa-In, which combine both heat and power generation for high efficiency, and plants which run on renewable energy resources.

GE’s LM6000 aeroderivative technology provides greater flexibility through its fast-start capability (10 minutes from cold iron), daily/multiple startups with no impact on the equipment maintenance cost and through its low turndown level (approximately 25 percent of power plant capacity).
