The first combined cycle co-generation power plant with a capacity of 166 MW was commissioned in 1996 at Amata City Chonburi. Over the next two decades, Amata B.Grimm Power continuously expanded the power and steam generation business at Amata’s sites.
Amata B.Grimm Power plants partially supply Amata’s customers with power and steam if conditions are met, but mainly sell power back to the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT). The main and standard power source comes from the Provincial Electricity Authority of Thailand (PEA) supplied at 22 KVA.
The first power plants are currently in overhaul by upgrading technology to improve energy efficiency to reduce consumption of natural gas by 10-15%, including adding innovative technology and digitalization to reduce maintenance; and will be recommissioned after extending the power purchase agreement with EGAT.
