The work is for nine 120MW and three 130MW power plants. The owner is Gulf MP and Pöyry was appointed by Toyo Engineering Corporation, the EPC contractor for the projects.
Pöyry's assignments include complete contractor's engineering services for the projects, including process and plant engineering, plant layout design, civil and structural design, mechanical and piping design, control and instrumentation design, electrical design, and procurement and tendering services.
The overall schedule for all 12 projects is 53 months. The commercial operation date for the first project is scheduled for May 2017 and all the projects are scheduled to have been completed by July 2019. These cogeneration plants are being implemented under Thailand's Small Power Producer (SPP) scheme, whereby 90 MW of each plant are sold to the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT) and electricity and steam to industrial users in each locality.
“In Thailand, Pöyry has been involved in more than half of the country's independent power producer and small power producer projects,” said Anja Silvennoinen, president of Pöyry's Energy Business Group.
