Micro CSP in Thailand

The plant is to be built in Bau Yai in the Nakorn Ratchasima Province and will provide electricity to the Provincial Electricity Authority of Thailand (PEA) in 2012. Additionally Sopogy granted MAI Development exclusive distribution rights for its MicroCSP system in Thailand, Cambodia, Laos and Vietnam. MAI Development holds 45 power purchase agreements with PEA to supply 360 MW of solar electricity for an estimated value of over US$ 500 million.

Sopogy uses small parabolic trough collectors to generate heat for an organic Rankine steam turbine. Typical power plants with this technology lie in the area of some few MW. Commercial non-micro CSP plants typically have a size of minimum 50 MW.
