Metito, a global leader in smart water management and alternative energy solutions, has been signed up by top Thai renewable energy power producer Absolute Clean Energy (ACE) to conceptualise and execute a comprehensive water treatment programme for 10 biomass powerplants in 10 different locations in the country.
The partnership marks a company-first with Metito covering an extensive scope of work for biomass powerplants, said the company in a statement.
This is in line with Metito’s global expansion plan that comprises the expansion of its Chemicals business line to include renewable projects and advanced applications in Thailand and the wider ASEAN region, it added.
Metito’s scope of work includes provision of a water treatment programme for the power plant including pretreatment, Reverse Osmosis (RO) system, cooling tower and boiler system; automation system to monitor and control the cooling tower water parameters to avoid the variation in these parameters during different seasons and operation conditions; onsite service support; scheduled and unscheduled; and training for both operators and management for optimized operations.
On the contract win, Managing Director Fady Juez said: "Thailand has always been on our radar, and therefore we developed a local presence by establishing Metito Thailand - in line with our modus operandi of local presence and global know-how - to oversee our operations and best manage the local market requirements."
"Metito Thailand reflects the vast opportunities we see in this country and we are confident that working with such high-profile clients such as ACE will enrich our portfolio in Thailand and in the region beyond," he stated.
Metito Thailand's General Manager Michael Justenhoven said: "There is an evident and tangible growth in the energy sector in Thailand which is being reinforced by the government’s initiative towards the use of renewable energy."
"This is particularly of interest to Metito with its most recent expansion into the alternative energy sector. Metito recognises the country’s potential to pave way for 100% clean energy production in the Asia Pacific region and we believe that our newest partnership with a high-profile client such as ACE will add shared value to all involved and the wider community in Thailand," he added.
