Thai Ministry of Energy on study trip

Date: 22/05/2017

A high-level delegation from Thailand headed by the Thai Minister of Energy visited Ramboll last week to learn more about our renewable energy solutions.

The green transition of the Danish energy system was high on the agenda as Ramboll hosted a group from the Ministry of Energy of Thailand. Ramboll has vast experience in green energy and presentations showcased wind, solar, biomass and waste-to-energy solutions.

Current Ramboll energy projects in the region include the SPIC Binhai H2 Offshore Wind Farm in China and an integrated waste management facility in Singapore, which will include what will be the largest waste-to-energy facility in the world.

The group, including the Minister of Energy General Anantaporn Kanjanarat and other top officials, are in Denmark to learn more about energy planning. The Deputy Director-General in the Department of Mineral Fuels, Mr Sarawut Kaewtathip, said that it was important for “the Minister to meet with the top-notch consultants in the field.”

“Thailand is increasingly promoting the use of renewables,” he said, “but we need holistic, integrated advice.”

The group will also visit the ‘renewable energy’ island of Samsø which is 100% self-sufficient with energy generated from wind, solar and biomass.
