Mitsubishi Heavy to build 977 MW power plant in Thailand

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) has received a full-turnkey order for the construction of a 977 MW gas-turbine power plant from Khanom Electricity Generating Co, an independent power producer in Thailand.

The gas-turbine combined-cycle (GTCC) plant will comprise two trains of a 488.5 MW power-generation unit, with both blocks slated to go on-stream in June 2016.
MHI and Kegco, a wholly owned subsidiary of Electricity Generating, also concluded a long-term service agreement for the plant, but MHI has not disclosed the value of the contract.

Once the GTCC power plant, which will be in Nakhon Si Thammarat's Khanom district, is completed, its output will be supplied to the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand under a long-term power purchase agreement.

The plant will have dual-fuel specifications enabling both natural-gas and diesel combustion, and will consist mainly of two Mitsubishi M701F5 gas turbines, two steam turbines and two generators.

Civil and installation work at the construction site will be handled by Sino-Thai Engineering and Construction.
