DP Cleantech to build Thai coconut-to-energy power plant

Biomass and waste-to-energy provider DP Cleantech has developed an advanced biomass combustion technology to convert coconut waste into clean energy.

DP Cleantech plans to use the technology in the Mahachai Green Power project in Samut Sakhon Province, Thailand. 

The 9.5MWe high pressure, high temperature plant will run on coconut waste residues such as husk, shell, frond and leaves. The design has been adapted for coconut waste to ensure minimal fuel consumption, flexibility to mix several kinds of fuels in various sizes, high power yields and will include flue gas cleaning systems to lower emissions below regulatory standards. 

The project is expected to be grid-connected within 18 months after the kickoff date. The power generated by the plant will be fed into the public PEA grid. Any remaining ashes will be used as fertilizer for farming or filler material for construction. 

“We are very excited to work on this industry-leading project which gives us the opportunity to showcase the flexibility and efficiency of our new multi-fuel solution, as well as demonstrate the full scope of our capabilities in delivering a project end to end,” said DP CleanTech CEO Simon Parker. “We believe that the energy market in Thailand is ready to be at the forefront of the new generation of solutions for biomass to power, using higher efficiency, multifuel and low emissions solutions.”
