The MoU was signed in support of Thailand’s of achieving carbon neutrality by 2050. Set to take place over the next three years, MHI, along with Mitsubishi Power, its power solutions brand, will exchange experiences and information on the specified areas with EGAT. This could also involve an exchange of engineers to share experiences and technical know-how on advancing cleaner power generation in Thailand.
“MHI Group has played an instrumental role in Thailand's vibrant energy growth story for more than five decades” said Ryo Takubo, President and Managing Director of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (Thailand). “Looking ahead, we will continue to contribute our capabilities around world-class gas turbines, which are being developed to co-fire cleaner fuels like hydrogen and ammonia, and CCUS technologies that are critical to lowering emissions. It is an honor to partner with EGAT to bring together our learnings and deep experience to unlock more opportunities and accelerate Thailand's decarbonisation."
The agreement expands the longstanding partnership between MHI, Mitsubishi Power and EGAT, which began in 1968 with the construction of the Queen Sirikit Dam. Since then, Mitsubishi Power has supplied many of its industry-leading products and services to meet EGAT's varied needs, contributing to significant energy projects across the country, including the South Bangkok Power Plant, Nam Phong Power Plant and Wang Noi Power Plant.
This new MoU aims to step up efforts to support Thailand's goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 40 per cent from the projected levels by 2030, carbon neutrality by 2050 and net zero emissions by 2065.
