Along with auxiliaries, they are installed at Korach’s 65 MW cogeneration plant located at Nakornsawan Province,Thailand, generating steam for the sugar mills and captive power for the entire complex. Excess electricity produced will be sold to the national grid (EGAT) under a power purchase agreement.
