Pöyry Gets Contract For Thai Biomass Power Plant

Published by:

Finnish company Pöyry Energy Inc. is a global engineering and consultancy firm with international clientele, with a primary focus on the energy and industrial sectors. Notably, the company’s been busy with research into key projects across the globe, such as the recent assessment of the Midi-Catalonia gas pipeline to run from France to Spain. Now, the global firm has another key project to work on, in Thailand, and it’s going to need to shop for things like flexible connector and other things.

Sino-Thai Engineering and Construction Public Co. Ltd recently awarded the Finnish engineering firm with the contract for the development of a new 20.6 MW biomass power plant, under ownership by Chana Green Co. Ltd., a private energy company and subsidiary of Gulf Development Co. Ltd. The new renewable energy plant will be built on Songkla, in Thailand’s Chana District.

STECON will be handling the EPC phase of the project, which will use rubber wood as its fuel supply. Pöyry will handle the process and plant engineering, as well handling plant layout design. Additionally, and civil, structural, mechanical, and piping design will also be handled by Pöyry. Pöyry will handle the construction efforts, including procurement of any necessary materials, like any flexible connector or the like. The project has a schedule of 24 months, and, should the schedule hold, will be operational sometime in March of 2020.

Thailand’s Small Power Producer scheme, is what allowed for the new power plant’s realization, which means that the plant’s 20.6 MW power output will be sold to the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand. The project received approval from the government early in March of 2018.

Pöyry Regional Director Petteri Härkki, expressed excitement in a statement, saying that Pöyry is looking forward to their cooperation with STECON and Gulf for the biomass project. He says that this contract will strengthen the company’s foothold on the thermal power and renewable energy industry in Thailand, where the company already has had a hand in the development of 50 power plants across the country. Additionally, he says, it strengthens the company’s position as Thailand’s leading global power industry engineering consultancy firm.

The details of the deal has yet to be revealed, though it has been confirmed that the transaction is recognized by the Energy Business Group order stock for H1 2018.
