Three GE Frame 6FA Gas Turbines For Malaysia Power Project
GE will supply three Frame 6FA gas turbines, associated generators and services for the 300-megawatt combined cycle gas-fired power plant project in Sabah, Malaysia. Using natural gas as its primary fuel, the new plant will reinforce Sabah’s energy infrastructure and help the state meet its growing electricity demand, which is increasing by more than 7 percent annually, the company said.
The Kimanis Power plant will consist of three combined-cycle blocks of approximately 100 megawatts each. In addition to supplying equipment, GE has signed a contractual service agreement (CSA) with Kimanis Power Sdn Bhd to support the plant for 18 years.
The plant is to be developed by Kimanis Power Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of PETRONAS Gas Berhad, the Malaysian natural gas company, on a build, own, operate and transfer (BOOT) basis. Electricity will be sold to Sabah Electricity Sdn Bhd. The project is located on the coastal area of Kimanis Bay, adjacent to the proposed site for an on-shore gas terminal.
