Background on Plant
TPI Polene Power of cement maker TPI Polene is sponsor of a 150 MW coal pant in Tapkwang, Kaeng Khoi district. The company received environment and health impact assessment (EHIA) approval in 2017.
In November 2018, a group of local people said the project's EHIA study was carried out without gathering sufficient feedback and other information. They have have threatened to take a legal action against the Energy Regulatory Commission if it grants the company a license for the plant. The group also says TPI Polene has already started building the plant despite not having the license, which could make it liable for certain penalties.
In January 2019 TPI Polene said the plant had begun commercial operation.
