Background

Thai Kraft Paper Industry Company Ltd.'s Wang Sala mill was founded in 1989.

In 1996, the company built a new cogeneration power plant unit for the mill. The company's turnkey contract was for a 149-MWt coal-fired Ahlstrom Pyroflow circulating fluidized bed boiler and a Siemens 34-MWe steam turbine (turbine #14).[1] The mill already appeared to have a 26.2 MW unit[2] (turbine #5), and potentially a 21.7 MW unit (turbine #6).[3]
