B. Grimm Power Public Company Limited, one of Thailand's fastest growing independent power producers, has awarded Pöyry the owner's engineering services assignment for its latest renewable energy project, the 16MW Bo Thong Wind Farm, located in Mukdahan province, Thailand.
Pöyry's assignment includes EPC bid evaluation and negotiations, energy yield assessments, project management, design review, and site monitoring during construction and commissioning. The project's target commercial operation date (COD) is September 2020.
“Typically located in less developed rural areas, wind farm projects not only benefit the energy sector development, but also contribute to achieve broader rural development goals, including the upgrade of local infrastructure, security, and electrical supply capability” said Esa Holttinen, Business Director, Wind Power. “Apart from that, such projects also create local job opportunities and spur additional income in the community, overall positively impacting the locality's quality of life”.
This project is part of B. Grimm Power's goal to add 635 MW equity capacity to its existing 1,082 MW equity capacity by the end of year 2021, making it a crucial part in ensuring at least 70 percent growth in the company's equity capacity in the next two years.
This is the 13th owner's engineering construction assignment that Pöyry has handled for B. Grimm Power, since the year 2010.
