Thai government supports cogeneration with new gas turbine order

As part of its effort to support small power producers, Thailand has ordered 20 Siemens gas turbines for use in combined-cycle cogeneration power plants.

The turbines will be used in 10 power plants located in industrial parks near Bangkok and operated by independent power producers. Each SGT-800 turbine has a capacity of 50.5 MW. For some of the turbines, Siemens will deliver chiller coils to enable an increase in power plant output of around 10 MWe.

The order is part of the third phase of the Thai government’s SPP (Small Power Producers) programme, which supports plants with a capacity of up to 90 MW. The amount of support provided depends on the amount of primary energy saved by the plants. To receive the subsidy, at least 5% of the thermal energy produced by the power plants in the form of steam or hot water must be made available to industrial consumers.
