Metropolitan Electricity Authority (MEA), led by Public Relations Director, Ms Pasuk Sampoonachot, together with M Pictures and Major Complex, presided over the first public appearance of “The Current War”, a historical movie depicting the evolution of direct and alternating current around the world at Siam Pavalai Royal Grand Theatre, Paragon Cineplex, on 17 July 2019.
The movie profiles the origins of electricity in the same way as MEA represents Thailand’s electricity originator. The MEA has been instrumental to the country’s electricity system since the beginning and is now promoting a professional electrician programme.
“As an organisation responsible for laying the foundation of Thailand’s electricity, the MEA is glad that M Pictures and Major Cineplex has brought The Current War to Thailand,” said Ms Pasuk.
The movie offers a good representation of MEA as a historic electricity organisation, which will have its 61st anniversary on 1 August 2019. MEA’s operations have always been for Thai citizens’ benefits, pushing for better technology and innovation to suit everybody’s needs. Recently, MEA has launched a professional electrician programme aiming to advance electricians’ skills in a systematic way. In collaboration with the Department of Skill Development, Ministry of Labour, MEA is holding a training program, interview, and test placement. MEA will provide instructors and all necessary tools. The goal is to give Residential Electrician Level 1 certificates to qualified electricians according to Skills Development Promotion Act (Issue No. 2) B.E. 2557, effective since 26 October 2013. The programme is part of MEA’s missions to safely distribute electricity as a historic organisation that gave birth to Thai electricity.
