The Provincial Electrical Authority brightened the day – and night – for residents behind Bangkok Hospital Pattaya by changing out power poles to increase electrical capacity to the neighborhood.
Assistant PEA construction chief Prasong Pued-udompol led a team of workers to Sukhumvit Soi 28 July 9 to replace the 12-meter-tall poles with poles 14.3 meters tall. The new poles hold five circuits, versus the previous one. The result is greater capacity for local users.
PEA workers install a new transformer on Sukhumvit Soi 28 to increase electrical capacity to the neighborhood behind Bangkok Hospital Pattaya.
The work was part of a 5 million baht project by the PEA to increase electrical capacity to all of Naklua. Similar work already was done on Soi Pothisan.
The PEA said it will give 15 days notice before work begins to residents in areas where future projects are planned.
