Construction of Navigation Dams on the Chao Phraya and Nan Rivers

Client: Marine Department, Ministry of Transport
Consultant:
ATT Consultants Co., Ltd. (ATT)

In the navigation channel of the Chao Phraya River, Thailand’s major transportation artery, cargo vessels are currently only able to go upstream to Ang Thong, which is 180 km from the sea. The Marine Department thus initiated a project on construction of a lower navigation dam in the Phrom Buri District of Sing Buri and an upper one in the Phayuha Khiri District of Nakhon Sawan. The project will enable vessels to go 477 km upstream from the sea until Taphan Hin District in Phichit which will be navigable all year round, and can thus reduce national transportation costs.
