Jera to sell stakes in Thailand power plants

Japan’s LNG trading giant Jera has agreed to sell stakes in two natural gas-fired combined-cycle power plants in Thailand.

The joint venture of Tepco and Chubu Electric said in a statement on Tuesday it had concluded an agreement to sell the plants with a subsidiary of Eastern Power Group.

Furthermore, Eastern Power would buy Jera’s entire stake in two operating companies that operate cogeneration facilities at the Lat Krabang Industrial Estate and Bangpoo Industrial Estate in the suburbs of Bangkok, Thailand.

Jera has a 23.80 percent stake in the Lat Krabang plant with a 120MW capacity but also a 19.04 percent stake in the Bangpoo plant with a 240MW capacity.

The firm expects the sale to complete by the end of fiscal 2021.

“Jera will continue to renew its portfolio going forward, selling assets and reinvesting the proceeds as it optimizes its asset allocation for compatibility with a changing business environment and seeks to expand earnings,” it said.

Jera has this year revealed several LNG-to-power and hydrogen developments.

One of the most recent moves includes buying a 27 percent stake in Aboitiz Power, as Jera plans to develop LNG-to-power projects in the Philippines.

It also recently sold its stake in MT Falcon Holdings, which operates five natural gas combined-cycle power plants in northeastern Mexico.
