March 23, 2018

Sino-Thai Engineering and Construction Public Company Ltd. (STECON) has awarded Pöyry with the engineering services assignment for Chana 20.6 MW net biomass power plant project in Chana District, Songkla, Thailand. The owner of the project is Chana Green Company Limited, a private power producer company and subsidiary of Gulf Development Company Limited. STECON has been selected as the EPC contractor for the project, which uses rubber wood as fuel.

Pöyry’s assignment covers complete contractor’s engineering services for the project, including process and plant engineering, plant layout design, civil and structural design, mechanical and piping design, control and instrumentation design, electrical design, and procurement and tendering services. The overall schedule for the project is 24 months and is expected to have a March 2020 Commercial Operation Date.

This biomass power plant is being implemented under Thailand’s Small Power Producer (SPP) scheme, whereby 20.6 MW are sold to the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT). The project has received notice to proceed in early March 2018.

“We are looking forward to continue our good cooperation with STECON and Gulf in this interesting project. This award further strengthens our position in the Thermal Power & Renewable Energy field in Thailand, where we have had a substantial role in the design and construction of about 50 power plant projects and are the leading international power sector consulting engineering company in the country.” says Petteri Härkki, Regional Director of Pöyry.
