Prime Minister Prayut Chan-o-cha Tuesday insisted that the Krabi coal-fired power plant project must go on, but the time frame will be delayed for around one year to make a proper understanding on the project.

Speaking to reporters after the weekly cabinet meeting, Prayut said that to prevent the power shortage in the future, Krabi coal-fired power plant project and its Environment and Health Impact Assessment must go on.

But the project and EHIA study must be revised based on suggestions from tripartite committee to make a good understanding on the project, Prayut added.

Prayut said this process will delay the schedule of the project by one year and Krabi coal-fired power plant can start the operation within 2024.
