Pöyry PLC Press Release 30 April 2019 17:00 CET
The 260 MW Hanuman Wind Farm Project, owned by the Energy Absolute Public Company Limited (EA), the largest renewable energy company in the SET, has recently entered commercial operation. Composed of five sub-projects located in Chaiyaphum Province, the project is set to be one of the biggest of its kind in Thailand.
International engineering consultancy company Pöyry provided owner's engineering services for the WTG erection and commissioning of the wind farms. This included reviewing and inspecting the WTG supplier's site management plans, progress reports and commissioning and testing reports, monitoring the actual progress of erection and commissioning works and regular reporting to owner, attending system walk downs to identify punch list items, as well as re-inspections after remedial actions by WTG supplier.
Pöyry was selected to handle the project's OE services because of the company's extensive experience in wind farm projects and expertise in the renewable energy business.
The electricity output from this project will be sold to the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT), per Thailand's power purchase agreement.
"As one of the biggest wind power projects in Southeast Asia, the Hanuman project sets an example to South East Asian nations on how to substantially increase the domestic renewable energy production in order to cut greenhouse gas emissions, to diversify national energy production portfolio, and to reduce long term operating cost of the power system," said Esa Holttinen, Pöyry's Business Director, Wind Power.
