Background on Plant

The proposed power station has been opposed by local residents for environmental and health reasons since 2008.[1]

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.[2]

However, as of 2015 there has been no news of project developments, and it appears to be abandoned.
