Frame 9FA Turbines for Malaysian Power Plant
GE Energy will supply two Frame 9FA gas turbine-generators for the Tuanku Jaafar Power Station that is part of the Port Dickson Rehabilitation Project, Phase 2, in Malaysia. The new power station will have a combined-cycle capacity of approximately 750 MW when it enters commercial operation in July of 2008 and is owned by Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB), the national power company and the largest utility in Malaysia. TNB has a generation capacity of more than 10 500 MW, or more than 65% of the total power generated in Peninsular Malaysia.
In addition to the 9FA gas turbines, the scope of GE's contract includes two model 324 H2-cooled generators, technical advisory services, training and spare parts for the new units. The equipment will be manufactured at GE's facilities in Greenville, South Carolina, U.S.A. and shipped to Malaysia in the first quarter of 2007. Natural gas will be the primary fuel for the new power plant, with distillate oil as a backup.
For the new Port Dickson project, GE is part of a consortium that includes Sumitomo Corporation of Japan, the consortium leader with onshore supply and installation responsibilities; and Toshiba Corporation of Tokyo, responsible for plant design and off-shore supply of the steam turbine-generator, heat recovery steam generators and other balance-of-plant equipment.
