Srinagarind hydroelectric facility

The Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand has ordered electromechanical equipment from Andritz Hydro to rehabilitate the 720-MW Srinagarind hydroelectric facility on the Khwae Yai River in Si Sawat District of Kanchanaburi Province, Thailand.

The cost for the work is not immediately available, but according to a March 16 press release from Andritz Hydro, the rehabilitation process is scheduled to begin in 2019.

The rehabilitation order includes the supply of three vertical Francis runners, including model test, generators, governors, automation system, main transformer, medium- and low-voltage switchgears, power and control cables, fire protection system, a 230-kV disconnecting switch, the main inlet valve, mechanical auxiliaries, installation supervision and commissioning.

The Srinagarind project has a total installed capacity of 360 MW of conventional hydropower and 360 MW of pumped-storage generation.

The US$114 million project contains an embankment dam and a reservoir completed in 1980. The facility’s three 120-MW Francis turbines and two 180-MW Francis pump-turbines were commissioned incrementally between 1980 and 1991.
