The Main Background Events:
To expand the business activities more aggressively and to sustain company's business growth inThailand and the surrounding countries, in 2012, CEPCO decided to integrate its fully owned subsidiary CEPT and CEPCO's Bangkok Office. CEPT was established in March 2003 to conduct O&M works for the power businesses CEPCO is engaged in. On the other hand, the Bangkok Office was set up in February 2006 to served as a base for overseas business activities inThailand and other countries in the Southeast Asian region. In this capacity, it collected information relating to the energy business and conducted research and market studies on new business opportunities. In December 2012, the Bangkok Office was closed and CEPT was the surviving entity.
In December 2014, JERA-PT joinly established a new subsidiary, JERA Power Engineering(Thailand) Co., Ltd. (JERA-PET, former name: CEPT Engineering Co., Ltd.), with notable Thai partners. JERA-PET serves to strengthen the JERA-PT's operating activities.
