Hydrostatic test successfully completed at Uttaradit project

On 5 January 2021, the DP team working on the 9.5MWe Uttaradit biomass power plant in Thailand successfully completed the hydrostatic test at 174 bars and holding for 30 mins. The hydrostatic test is the first important performance test and paves the way for steam blowing and further test milestones.   


The plant is owned by Uttaradit Green Power Co. Ltd - a consortium composed of Thai rice milling companies and the well-established IPP (Independent Power Producer) Phichit Biopower. The plant will be using locally sourced rice husks or woodchip (up to 100% of each) or a mixture of these fuels. DP is supplying the boiler island (fuel feeding, combustion, boiler and flue gas treatment) on an EPC basis (design, procure and install and commission); and will also provide an EPCM service for the balance of plant.
