Four EGAT plants totalling 1210 MW have stopped supplying Thailand’s national grid because of floods, said the state-owned power generator.

EGAT has bought additional power from other plants so that 18 per cent of the nation’s overall capacity remains in reserve, said its governor Sutat Patamasiriwat.

EGAT puts its installed capacity at 13,617 MW, accounting for about 47.8 per cent of the country’s 28,479 MW generating capacity. EGAT also purchases electric power from private power companies and neighbouring countries.
