Japan, Tokyo: A consortium comprising of Japanese Marubeni, Siemens AG and Siemens Ltd. Thailand has completed works on the Wang Noi 4 combined cycle power plant in Thailand.
The unit Wang Noi 4 is an extension of a power plant complex with three units located in the vicinity of Bangkok. Marubeni supplied the main power transformers, heat recovery steam generators and the cooling tower.
Wang Noi 4 is one of the most modern power plants in Thailand and currently in all of South East Asia in terms of environmental compatibility and efficiency. The natural gas fired power plant has an efficiency of over 57.3 % with an electrical capacity of 770 MW, reports Webwire.
“We are glad that, thanks to the experience of Siemens and Marubeni in the construction of EPC power plants, we were able to take over the power plant on original schedule, despite complications due to the flooding disaster in October / November 2011. This new plant will help us to ensure a reliable power supply for the Bangkok metropolitan region.” said EGAT (Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand)’s Khun Ratanachai Namwong, Deputy Governor, Power Plant Development.
