30 April 2019
Energy Absolute Public Company has brought online the 260MW Hanuman wind farm cluster in Thailand.
The development comprises five sub-projects and features Siemens Gamesa G126-2.5MW hardware.
Finnish engineering consultancy Poyry provided owner’s engineering services during installation and commissioning of Hanuman.
Poyry’s work included reviewing and inspecting the turbine supplier’s site management plans, progress reports and commissioning and testing reports.
It also monitored installation and commissioning and reported to the owner, attending system walk downs to identify punch list items, as well as re-inspections after remedial actions by the turbine supplier.
Electricity from the wind farm will be sold to the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand under a power purchase agreement.
Poyry business director, wind power said: “As one of the biggest wind power projects in south-east Asia, the Hanuman project sets an example to south-east Asian nations on how to substantially increase the domestic renewable energy production in order to cut greenhouse gas emissions, to diversify national energy production portfolio, and to reduce long term operating cost of the power system.”
