EGAT buys new US$550m combined cycle power plant

It's expected to provide 1,200MW of electricity by 2019.

Siemens, together with its Japanese consortium partner Marubeni Corporation, has received an order for the delivery of a turnkey combined cycle power plant to Thailand. Purchaser is the state-owned utility Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT). 

The gas-fired power plant South Bangkok consists of two units in a single-shaft configuration and will feature two H-class gas turbines for the first time in the country. After commissioning in 2019 the power plant with an electrical output of around 1,200 megawatts is expected to power 1.5 million Thai households.

The combined order volume for Siemens and Marubeni is approximately 550 million U.S. dollar (the equivalent of approximately 500 million Euro).

Siemens will deliver the key components consisting of two SGT5-8000H gas turbines, two SGen5-3000W generators and two steam turbines of model SST5-5000. Also included in the scope of supply are two heat recovery steam generators engineered by NEM and the SPPA-T3000 control system. The consortium partner Marubeni is responsible for civil and erection works, cooling tower, high voltage gas insulated switchyard and some balance of plant equipment.
