GE Inks Service Agreement With Malaysian Power Plant
GE has signed a multi-year agreement to provide maintenance services for the Tuanku Ja’afar PD 2 combined-cycle power station at Port Dickson, Negeri Sembilan, Malaysia. The 750 MW Tuanku Ja’afar PD2 power plant, which features two GE Frame 9FA gas turbines, is owned by Tenaga National Berhad (TNB), an electric utility company in Malaysia, GE said.
The new US$31 million (€21.4 million) agreement marks GE’s second multi-year maintenance program with TNB Repair and Maintenance Sdn Bhd (REMACO). The first multi-year maintenance program with REMACO was for an eight-year contract for Petronas Gas Berhad’s Centralised Utilities Facilities (CUF) located at Kerteh and Gebeng, Malaysia.
The maintenance program is designed to increase the availability and reliability of the GE 9FA gas turbines at the Tuanku Ja’afar combined-cycle power station, GE said. It also will help the plant maintain high levels of fuel efficiency and reduce maintenance cycles by one third. The contract runs until 2014, during which GE will supply OEM parts and services, including technical advisory services, repair and training.
