The Electricity Generating Authority of Thailand (EGAT) is a state enterprise. Managed by the Ministry of Energy, it’s responsible for electric power generation and transmission as well as bulk electricity sales in Thailand. As EGAT supplies electric power to the entire country, any power failure leads to downtime for production and commercial units, which causes losses to industries and in turn to the economy. To prevent these consequences, EGAT’s engineering department conducts strict material inspection checks with Hitachi High-Tech’s spectrometers at their workshop and parts department within the North Bangkok Power Plant.
EGAT used to rely on third party testing labs for material inspection testing but several years ago purchased a Hitachi High-Tech’s spark spectrometer to get the tests done in-house and on-site to reduce the time taken and increase productivity.
