B.Grimm Power Co, a unit of B.Grimm Group, plans to invest 17 billion baht in 2017-18, including for the development of hydropower in neighbouring Laos.

Of the total, around 1.8 billion baht is for the development of eight hydropower plants with a combined power-generating capacity of 12.6 megawatts, said president and chief executive Preeyanart Soontornwata.

She said two of those are the Xenamnoy (Phase 2) and Xekatam (Phase 1) projects, both located in Champasak province and still under construction. They are scheduled to start commercial operations on June 30 this year.

The company signed a 25-year power purchase agreement with Electricite du Laos to supply the power generated by hydropower plants to Laos’ state utilities.

The other six hydropower plants in Laos are also under construction. They comprise Nam Che 1 with a capacity of 15MW, Nam Khao 1 with 15MW, Nam Khao 2 with 15MW, Nam Khao 3 with 15MW, Nam Khao 4 with 15MW and Nam Khao 5 with 7.5MW.
