Background on Plant
The proposed power station has been opposed by local residents for environmental and health reasons since 2008.
Under Thailand's national power development plan for 2012-2030, the Thap Sakae project may be described as EGAT Coal-Fired TH, and implemented in four stages of 800 MW each, coming online in 2019, 2022, 2025, and 2028 respectively.
However, as of 2015 there has been no news of project developments, and it appears to be abandoned.
