Thailand’s Central Administrative Court on Tuesday instructed state agencies concerned to allow two private companies to proceed with the construction and machinery testing by six projects in the Map Ta Phut Industrial Estate to prevent possible damage following the court’s order suspending the operation of 64 projects in September last year.

The ministries of industry, natural resources and environment, and other ministries concerned were ordered to permit six projects owned by PTT Asahi Chemical and Thai Ethanolamines proceed with facilities construction and machinery testing.

The court said its staff conducted a field inspection of the two companies’ six projects and found that resuming the projects would not pollute surrounding communities.

Unless the projects are allowed to go ahead with the implementation as pleaded, both companies would sustain huge damages.
