Pöyry has announced the completion of owner's engineer services contract for Amata B. Grimm Power 4 and 5 power plants in Thailand.
The two power plants for which Pöyry has completed its contract include ABPR4 and ABPR5 each with a capacity of 130 MW. They are part of a fleet of combined cycle generation plants owned by B. Grimm Power.
The combined cycle power plants are located within the Amata City Industrial Estate, in Chonburi Province, Thailand.
Pöyry has provided owner’s engineering services (OEM) for both power plants which included project management, design review, EPC contract administration and schedule control and erection and installation surveillance of the complete plant.
