Government agencies likely to approve Surat Thani power plant project
Government agencies are set to approve a 1,400-megawatt gas-fired power plant project in Surat Thani this year.
It is replacing two highly contentious coal-fired power plant projects in the southern region.
Due to be built in Phunphin district, the facility is expected to receive the green light in the fourth quarter by the Energy Ministry, the National Energy Policy Council and the Ministry of Natural Resources and Environment.
Its development will be carried out by state-run Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT), following its month-long feasibility study of the project.
