Thailand's Global Power Synergy PCL (GPSC) said it was joining with Japan's Marubeni Corp and Myanmar's EDEN Group to develop a 400-megawatt gas-fired combined-cycle power plant in Myanmar as part of its foreign expansion, according to Reuters on June 11.

GPSC, the flagship power business of top Thai energy firm PTT PCL, and the consortium have signed a memorandum of understanding with Myanmar’s government, Noppadol Pinsupa, the president of GPSC, said in a statement.

The power plant, to be located at Thanlyin, will serve rising demand from the residential and industrial sectors, including the Thilawa special economic zone and the Thanlyin oil refinery improvement project that the PTT group is bidding for, the statement said.
