RATCH Group Public Company Limited (formerly named Ratchaburi Electricity Generating Holding Public Company Limited) describes its goal as becoming "a leading value-oriented energy and infrastructure company in Asia Pacific."[1]

Interests in Lao coal plant

As of 2009, RATCH was a 40% shareholder in Hongsa Power Company, a consortium which also includes Banpu Power (40%) (a susbidiary of the the Thai coal-mining company Banpu) (BPP) and Lao Holding State Enterprise (LHSE), which has a 20% stake. [2]

The power station was proposed as a mine-mouth power station which, together with the mine and associated infrastructure, was slated to cost US$4 billion. The consortium was granted a 25 year concession over a 60 square kilometre site. Under the terms of a May 2009 agreement, 1,473 MW would be exported to the Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT) with 100 MW for domestic Lao consumption. (The remainder was for on site use).[2]
