Malaysia Turnkey Construction Order
Four Siemens cogeneration units will produce 1200 MW; includes long-term service agreement
In consortium with MMC Engineering Services Sdn Bhd (MMCES) of Malaysia, Siemens has received an order from Malaysia’s state-owned petroleum corporation, Petronas, for the turnkey construction of the Pengerang Co-generation Plant (PCP) in Malaysia.
Siemens scope of supply includes the turnkey construction of the PCP, which comprises four co-generation units, along with a long-term maintenance and services contract. Each unit comes with an SGT5-8000H gas turbine, a waste heat recovery steam generator, a steam turbine, associated mechanical and electrical systems, and the instrumentation and control system, the company said.
The PCP will be able to produce approximately 1220 MW of power and up to 1480 tonnes/hr of steam for the Pengerang Integrated Complex (PIC), Petronas’ mega development in Pengerang, Southern Johor, Malaysia. Siemens said the PCP will be one of the largest and most efficient gas-fired power plants in Malaysia.
PCP’s first co-generation unit is expected to go online by mid-2017, and it will also supply power to the national grid for public consumption. The remaining co-generation units will supply to PIC’s facilities.
