Description The Project is a 1,434 MW coal-fired thermal power plant located at Map Ta Phut, Rayong Province, approximately 200 kilometers southeast of Bangkok. The Plant is a two unit pulverized coal-fired, steam-electric generating station operated by BLCP Power Limited (Project Company). The net power produced by BLCP is fed to the Plant's 500 kV switchyard through which the electricity will be sold to the national utility and transported through the national grid.
Objectives and Scope
Linkage to Country/Regional Strategy The Project is consistent with ADB's energy sector strategy and is a competitively bid project. The output is supplied to EGAT at a tariff that is competitive relative to other existing generation plants. The technology adopted by the Project is consistent with ADB's environment policy, and price stability for the end consumer. ADB promotes reforms to improve accountability and governance in the sector as well as efficiency gains and affordable tariffs.
