GE has been awarded a five-year service agreement with Thailand’s District Cooling System and Power Plant (DCAP), the largest district cooling plant in the country, for services support for two existing aeroderivative gas turbines that provide power and chilled water to Bangkok’s Suvarnabhumi International Airport.
The service agreement will help DCAP improve performance efficiency of the 110 megawatt plant, assure stability and reliability of the international airport’s power production and cooling system, while reducing overall cost of ownership to the 110 megawatt plant. As the OEM of the gas turbine, GE aims to bring improved availability and performance to the plant while performing all of the plant’s major maintenance needs over the next five years.
“At DCAP, we are committed to ensuring a steady supply of electricity to the nation’s international Suvarnabhumi Airport, Thailand’s leading transportation hub that accommodates about 64 million passengers and 1.3 million tons of cargo a year”, said Mr Suthep Ruangpornwisuth, Director Acting General Manager, at the contract signing ceremony.
