Bangkok--4 Oct--B.Grimm Power
B.Grimm Power Plc (BGRIM) has won the bid to build and operate a hybrid energy complex serving U-tapao International Airport in Rayong.

The Royal Thai Navy (RTN) notified the SET-listed BGRIM of being chosen to carry out phase one project which will have a combined generating capacity of 95 megawatts in electrical power along with the production of , cold water and 50 megawatt/hour energy storage system.

"We are proud and thankful for being entrusted to undertake this scheme which is very important element in U-tapao Airport development, "said BGRIM President Preeyanart Soontornwata.
The phase-one development calls for BGRIM to put in a place an 80-MW co-generation facility, establishing a 15-MW solar power farm and an energy storage system capable of storing 50 megawatt/hour.

The stage-two involves the construction of an 80-MW co-generation, a 55-MW solar power facility which will be installed in one or several surfaces to be decided later - on the ground, roof-top and on a structure on the water.

The development of phase-one will be undertaken between 2018 and 2021 while the stage-two will be implemented between 2021 and 2023.

Mrs Preeyanart said BGRIM stands ready to prepare details of the development in accordance with the terms of reference set by RTN and ensuring that the works involved can be executed rapidly to meet emerging demand arising from the expansion of U-tapao airport and its vicinity.

"We are confident that we can start supplying electricity and cold water to U-tapao airport and adjoining RTN area in January 2021 in a secure and reliable manner," she added.
The development of the hybrid energy complex in U-tapao airport is part of BGRIM's aggressive expansion of its power portfolio in Thailand and overseas.
BGRIM, Thailand's fast-growing private power producer, on Monday successfully put on stream a 133-MW co-generation plant, known as ABPR5, in Amata City Industrial Estate, Rayong.

The ABPR5 raises the number of power plants operating on commercial basis under BGRIM in Thailand and abroad to 33, 15 of which are co-generation, 15 solar, two hydropower and a diesel-fuelled. Development of additional power plants, with a combined installed capacity of 1,081 MW, is underway.

BGRIM has to date secured long-term contracts to deliver 3,126 MW to buyers.
