Ratch plans capacity boost

Ratchaburi Electricity Generating Holding Plc (Ratch) has budgeted US$5 billion (166 billion baht) to expand power generation to 10,000 megawatts from 7,500MW over the next five years.

Chief executive Kijja Sripattangkura said yesterday that Ratch, Thailand's biggest private power producer, expects to add 2,500MW to committed power purchase agreement (PPA) capacity over the next few years.

Of the total current capacity of 7,500MW, some 6,500MW is already running and the rest will come from projects under construction.
