Bangkok – Germany’s Pro Ventrum International on Tuesday announced plans to build a 90-megawatt wind farm in north-eastern Thailand with US-based GE Energy as a partner.

The firms signed an agreement for GE to supply wind turbines for the proposed Thepsathit Wind Farm, which will require an estimated investment of 5.8 billion baht (178.5 million dollars).

“When operational, the 90-megawatt wind farm powered by 36 units of GE’s 2.5-megawatt wind turbines could potentially be one of the first of its scale for Thailand and the greater ASEAN region,” GE Energy’s Thailand director Kovit Kantapasara said.

The farm will be situated in Chaiyaphum province, about 250 kilometres from Bangkok. The power would be sold to the state-owned Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand.
