B Grimm Power Plc has confirmed that its two major power projects, with a combined generating capacity of 240 megawatts, will proceed as planned despite a change of location. Company president Preeyanart Soontornwata said the shifting of the project site from Ratchaburi to Samut Prakan would not affect the scheduled commercial operation date, set for 2021. The company is seeking permission from the Energy Regulatory Commission to change the location of the BGPR1 and BGPR2 co-generation facilities, she said. At the same time, B Grimm has coordinated with the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (Egat), purchaser of the power supply, to make available a grid connection and substation at the new location.
