The Chana Combined Cycle Power Plant was the first power plant project to resume after the Asian currency crisis of 1997. Also, this project served a very important role in Thailand to correspond to rapid increase of electricity demand, following economic growth of the country.
The order was received jointly with Siemens (Germany) as a full turnkey project that included equipment supply and civil/installation works. Siemens provided their gas turbine, steam turbine and generator, and Marubeni was responsible for the exhaust heat recovery boiler, auxiliary equipment and civil/installation works.
In 2006, Marubeni and Siemens have jointly signed a contract for Bang Pakong Combined Cycle Power Plant Block 5 expansion project in Thailand. In addition to Marubeni’s great quantity of delivery experience in Thailand, the price and technological qualities of both companies were highly regarded, which then led to the simultaneous receipt in 2011 of orders for the second phase expansion project of the Chana Combined Cycle Power Plant and Wang Noi Combined Cycle Power Plant Unit 4 expansion project. They are state-of-the-art combined thermal power plants that use eco-friendly Thai natural gas as fuel and collect and utilize the exhaust heat from a high efficiency large gas turbine.
