On Wednesday October 7th several final year Mechanical Engineering students from Asian University visited the District Cooling System and Power Plant Co., Ltd. (DCAP). This is located 2km from Suvarnabhumi international airport and it provides 48MW of power to Suvarnabhumi, meeting all of its electrical needs.

This is a unique power plant in Thailand because it not only generates electricity from both a gas and a steam turbine but it uses the waste heat to provide chilled water for the air conditioning systems at Suvarnabhumi. It was the first of its kind in Thailand and as a result attracts over 1,000 visitors per year mostly from Industrial and Academic environments.

Upon their arrival the students were greeted by Mr. Darunporn Kamolpus the vice president of DCAP who gave a technical presentation and a guided tour of the impressive facilities.

They were accompanied by two lecturers from the Engineering faculty at Asian University, Dr. Rajesh Kempegowda and Dr. James Moran. It was an interesting field trip and gave the students to opportunity to experience practical applications of engineering to compliment their classroom studies.
