Green light for large Asian wind farm supported by Motts

One of the largest wind farms in south east Asia reached financial close today, with consultant Mott MacDonald acting as independent engineer.

Mott MacDonald has worked on behalf of lenders Kasikorn bank and Siam Commercial bank which is investing $222M (£143M) to construct the scheme. The firm reviewed the technical and commercial robustness of the wind farm design, interconnection arrangements and project contracts.

Developer Wind Energy Holdings can now construct the 207MW wind farm in the hillside of Korat Province in Thailand, 150km north of Bangkok.

Mott MacDonald has an ongoing role in the project, which consists of ninety 2.3MW wind turbines with a blade diameter of 101m. Once completed, the developer will sell electricity to the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand over a 25-year period.
