Marubeni Awarded Combined-Cycle Power Plant Project in Thailand


Marubeni Corporation (“Marubeni”), in a consortium with Siemens Aktiengesellschaft, Germany and Siemens Limited, Thailand (“Siemens Group”), has been awarded the South Bangkok (combined-cycle thermal) Power Plant Replacement Project Phase 1 from the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand.

This power plant will have the capacity to produce around 1,200MW of electricity, having an EPC contract value of approximately 60 billion Japanese Yen.

The construction site of this project is located along the Chao Phraya River in the Mueang District of Samut Prakan Province, a southern suburb of Bangkok. This new power plant will replace an existing thermal power plant and as it is highly efficient it will reduce the burden on the environment.

This is a full turn-key project and the scope of the Marubeni and Siemens consortium for this project includes engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning. Such main equipment such as gas turbines, steam turbines, generators and heat recovery steam generators will be supplied by the Siemens Group, while Marubeni is in charge of supplying the balance of plant equipment, civil engineering
 /construction and installation work.

Within the last 10 years in Thailand, the Marubeni and Siemens consortium has jointly succeeded in a total of 4 combined cycle power plant projects, and the extensive experience and reliable performance of the technology in these past projects contributed to winning the award for this project.

Marubeni's total awarded capacity in Thailand, accumulated over the last 50 years, has now reaching 11GW including this project. This represents around 30 percent of the country's total installed power capacity.

In Thailand, several new large-scale projects, including combined cycle projects, are in the planning and development stage. Marubeni, with its strong presence in the market, will continue to actively pursue further opportunities to contribute to a stable power supply in Thailand.
