Thailand's largest wind farm enters commercial operations

The 260MW Hanuman Wind Farm is composed of five sub-projects.

The 260MW Hanuman Wind Farm project in Thailand has achieved commercial operations, an announcement by Finnish engineering firm Pöyry revealed.

The project, which is owned by the Energy Absolute Public Company Limited (EA), is composed of five sub-projects located in Chaiyaphum Province, and is set to be one of the biggest of its kind in Thailand.

The electricity output from this project will be sold to the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT), per Thailand's power purchase agreement.

"As one of the biggest wind power projects in Southeast Asia, the Hanuman project sets an example to Southeast Asian nations on how to substantially increase the domestic renewable energy production in order to cut greenhouse gas emissions, to diversify national energy production portfolio, and to reduce long term operating cost of the power system," Esa Holttinen, Pöyry's business director for wind power, said in a statement.
