Mr. Thongchai Chotkajornkiat, Executive Vice President - Corporate Management of EGCO Group, said, “Although COVID-19 pandemic situation in Thailand has been improved, the public is advised to continue physical distancing. This measure is important to prevent and reduce risks of infection among young people who are now enjoying school break. EGCO Group as an expert in the electricity generating industry realizes that it is important to promote learning and knowledge about energy and environment among children and youth, who will grow up and become the leaders in community, social and national development. We believe that a good beginning makes a good ending and that we can stop the pandemic without stop learning. We, therefore, seek a new learning way for the young by using modern technology and online system. We have developed a virtual learning system to allow people to “virtually” visit the “Khanom Power Plant Learning Center” so that they can continue learning about energy, electricity generating process, community learning centers and the environment in Khanom District. With this virtual exhibition, interested persons can visit our learning center anytime and from anywhere.”

The Khanom Learning Center Virtual Exhibition allows interested persons to explore and enjoy the world of energy and electricity at their fingertips. The exhibition comprises seven zones beginning with the discovery of electricity and basic electricity generating theory to water turbine electricity generation which is the main system at Khanom Power Plant Unit 1. In addition, visitors can also enjoy the virtual surrounding of the learning center, including the scenic view, rich nature, way of living, history and culture in Khanom through multimedia tools.

Young people and interested persons can visit the virtual exhibition of Khanom Learning Center at on computer, tablet and smartphone from now. Later, EGCO Group will develop fun and knowledgeable games that enhance learning, promote analytical and other important skills that support modern learning of the 21st Century.



“In addition to the virtual exhibition of Khanom Learning Center, EGCO Group has distributed various learning tools from our “Energy for Life: Fighting Global Warming with Sufficiency Theory” to promote sustainable conservation of energy and the environment. Such tools come in many forms like posters, comic books, games and other multimedia tools. Such knowledge is added in the OBEC’s e-content application. This allows teachers, academics and students to have access to the information on energy and environment, which must be updated all the time. Even in the time that we all are fighting against COVID-19, learning should not be interrupted,” concluded Mr. Thongchai.
