MARKET TRENDS & DRIVERS

Increased Focus on Lithium Mining

  • The Ruangkiat deposit, confirmed by the Department of Primary Industries and Mines, contains over 14.8 million tonnes of lithium, enough to power at least 1 million electric vehicles with 50 kWh lithium batteries.
  • Svolt Energy Technology Company, China's Great Wall Motor spin-off, has initiated mass production at Thailand's newly constructed electric vehicle (EV) battery assembly plant. The joint venture with Banpu Next, located near Chonburi, aims to supply the nearby Rayong province's EV industry.

Investment in Green Hydrogen

Thailand is also exploring using gas turbines that can operate on a combination of natural gas and green hydrogen or run entirely on hydrogen. Additionally, the government is considering the implementation of battery storage for solar energy, thereby leveraging the country's significant sun exposure and integrating fuel cell-driven power plants into its energy plans. Additionally, as of March 2024, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Asia Pacific (MHI-AP) and PTT, a Thai state-owned oil and gas company, are conducting a joint pre-feasibility study to explore the potential of using 100% ammonia in gas turbine power generation in Thailand.

Power Generation Through Waste Management Triggers the Use of Excavators & Loaders

The government has planned two new waste-to-energy power plants in Bangkok. The plant is expected to generate 35 megawatts of electricity using 1,000 tons of waste as fuel each day. Also, Absolute Clean Energy Power Co. Ltd. has started working on the ‘ALPC6’ Waste to Energy project in the Krabi province of southern Thailand; this project will consume 144,000 tons of solid waste per year and generate 6MW of electricity.
