Thai firm Global Power Synergy Public Company Limited (GPSC) has selected Pöyry to carry out owner’s engineer services at a new cogeneration plant being developed in Rayong, Thailand.
The Central Utility Plant 4, Phase 1 project will be a 48 MW, 140 t/h gas-fired cogeneration power plant designed to provide reliable and cost-competitive electricity and steam to industrial users in the Hemaraj Eastern Industrial Estate.
Pöyry’s contract will involve assistance in project management, design review, site supervision services, quality assurance and control and commissioning supervision. The overall schedule for Pöyry’s services is about 2 years, the firm said.
Pöyry was earlier involved in the same project as owner’s engineer during the development phase, providing technical advisory services to the project owner. The first phase of the project will consist of one gas turbine, one heat recovery steam generator with supplementary firing, steam and power distribution network to industrial consumers and auxiliary systems to support future expansion.
“We are very pleased to continue our good co-operation with GPSC in executing this important project,” said Petteri Härkki, Regional Director of Pöyry. “This is one of the first power plant projects using the new Siemens SGT 800B5 gas turbine, allowing greater efficiency in this size range.”
