"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.
