GE’s Distributed Power to supply gas engine technology in Thailand
The LM6000-PD gas turbines will be used for combined cycle in the 224 MW power plant
GE’s Distributed Power business signed a 12-year multi-year agreement with Ratchaburi World Cogeneration Co. of Thailand. The services agreement provides planned maintenance for four of GE’s LM6000-PD aeroderivative gas turbine packages.
RWC has a contract to supply power to Thailand’s national grid for 25 years and to supply remaining electricity, about 10 percent of installed capacity, and steam to its direct users located in the Ratchaburi Industrial Estate.
The LM6000-PD gas turbines will be used for combined cycle in the 224 MW power plant, which will generate electricity by using fuel gas. RWC will sell the steam produced to industrial users.
Ratchaburi World Cogeneration Co. generates electricity and steam in Thailand. The company operates two cogeneration projects with capacity of 112 MW each. Ratchaburi World Cogeneration Co. is based in the Photharam district, Ratchaburi Province, Thailand.
