EGAT (Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand) and INNOPOWER have joined forces in a groundbreaking move towards grid modernization, a development that holds the key to Thailand’s renewable energy future and opens up new opportunities for the nation.


The Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) was signed by Mr. Kitti Petchsantad, Deputy Governor – Transmission System of EGAT, and Mr. Athip Tantivorawong, Chief Executive Officer of INNOPOWER Company Limited. The MOU outlines their collaboration on grid modernization, particularly in the areas of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV), Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) platforms and centers, and an online management system for transformers. This momentous agreement was formalized at the EGAT 50th Anniversary Building, EGAT Headquarters.

Mr. Kitti Petchsantad, EGAT’s Deputy Governor of the Transmission System, emphasized the integration of modern technologies into the future transmission system to enhance its performance. Collaborating with INNOPOWER Company Limited on these transmission system technologies represents a significant opportunity for business growth. Furthermore, it positions Thailand on the path to becoming a regional leader in grid modernization.
