Construction News

A new power station on Thailand’s southern island of Koh Samui was officially launched today.

 The Samui electricity station II, linked by underwater cable from the mainland power plant in Kanom district of Surat Thani province, will generate power to Samui and the sister island of Koh Pa-ngan.

 The Provincial Electricity Authority (PEA) spent a budget of Bt4.198 billion in building the station and laying the 54km 115KV cable to supply 220MW of electricity to the two islands.

 The supply should be sufficient for the total demand for at least a decade, a PEA official said.
