The Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT) is planning to undertake the construction of a coal fired power plant in Krabi province, Thailand.
The project involves the construction of an 870MW power plant and will be executed in several phases.
The project will include the construction of powerhouse, substations and related facilities, the installation of turbines, generators and transformers, and the laying of transmission lines.
The plant will employ clean coal (Ultra Super Critical) technology that traps air pollutants like nitrogen oxide, sulphur oxide and micro-dust.
On March 26, 2015, EGAT invited bids from the interested companies to compete for design, supply, customs clearance, transportation to site, construction, erection and commissioning of structural, mechanical, electrical and switchyard equipment and material for Krabi power plant project with July 22, 2015 as the submission deadline.
In August 2015, two consortia including Consortium of Alstom Power Systems and Marubeni and the consortium of Power Construction Corporation of China and Italian-Thai Development submitted technical bids; however EGAT declared that the bids would not be legally binding until the project gets the environmental and health impact assessment (EHIA) approval from Office of Natural Resources and Environmental Policy (ONEP).
EGAT would issue its letter of intent to the bidders only after the EHIA and other government necessary approvals are in place. If the project fails to obtain the EHIA approvals, the project plans will be canceled and the bids will be scrapped.
In September 2015, the government of Thailand appointed a committee named Tripartite to undertake studies, which will decide the environmental impact of implementing Ultra Super Critical technology.
In April 2017, the project is facing delays as the Government of Thailand (GoT) demanded another environmental and health impact assessment (EHIA) report and asking to restart the project.
The project involves the construction of an 870MW power plant in Nua Khlong district, east of Phuket, Krabi province, Thailand.
The US$1,908 million project includes the following:
