Gunkul Engineering company Korat Wind Energy has passed its three-month completion review at the 50MW Mittraphap wind farm in Thailand.

The project is comprised of 20 turbines in Nakhon Ratchasima and sells power to the Electrical Generating Authority of Thailand via a long-term deal.

Mott MacDonald conducted technical due diligence during financing, which included reviewing the project’s participants, design, construction and operational execution plans, schedule and contractual arrangements, energy yield, site suitability reports and environmental and social plans.

The consultancy also provided construction monitoring services and will monitor operations throughout the loan tenor period, which commences in late 2018.

Mott MacDonald said: “It is an honour to be part of and contribute to Thailand achieving an increase in renewable energy consumption.”

It said Mittraphap adds to the country’s current wind installed capacity of 580MW already in commercial operation.
