Recently, the company has won a contract to provide the new turnkey solution for the project in Samut Sakhon Province.

As per the contract, the company is responsible for delivering 9.5MWe high pressure, high temperature solution on an EPC basis including all electro-mechanical systems for the project, which is expected to be commissioned within 18 months.

The new design is specifically designed to run on coconut waste residues such as husk, shell, frond and leaves that ensure minimal fuel consumption, flexibility to mix several kinds of fuels in various sizes, and high power yields.

The plant will also feature high efficiency flue gas cleaning systems to lower emissions below regulatory standards and is expected to operate at full capacity for more than 7,900 hours per year, ensuring long-term stable performance, DP Cleantech claims.

The company’s South-East-Asia headquarters office in Bangkok will manage delivery of the project, which is eligible for receiving Thailand’s biomass feed-in-tariffs.

The project, which will supply its output to the public PEA grid, is likely to create local jobs both in developing the project as well as in creating value for local farmer’s coconut waste.

DP CleanTech CEO Simon Parker said the company is working on the project which gives it the opportunity to showcase the flexibility and efficiency of its new multi-fuel solution, as well as demonstrate the full scope of its capabilities in delivering a project end to end.

"We believe that the energy market in Thailand is ready to be at the forefront of the new generation of solutions for biomass to power, using higher efficiency, multi-fuel and low emissions solutions.

"In addition, we believe that DP’s uniquely collaborative approach with Mahachai Green power and our project execution model will set the standard for the future," added Parker.
