GE Wins Eight-Year Service Agreement
GE has won a contract for an eight-year service agreement with TNB REMACO of Selangor, Malaysia, to drive maintenance in two existing facilities owned by PETRONAS Gas Berhad (PGB), a subsidiary of the nation’s oil and gas company, PETRONAS. The service agreement is designed to increase the availability and reliability of the nine GE Frame 6B cogeneration units that produce steam and electricity for the two facilities. The contract will run until 2017 and, during that time, GE will supply OEM parts and services, including technical advisory and training for the maintenance of the Frame 6B units.
The contract covers gas turbine maintenance at two cogeneration facilities operated by PGB’s Centralized Utilities Facilities (CUF). It is designed to continually improve utilities for petrochemical plants within the Integrated Petrochemical Complexes (IPCs).
“We understand how critical it is for CUF to have the best equipment and services. We are glad to be able to provide the best services to them in partnership with GE,” says Che Khalib Mohamad Noh, chairman, president and chief executive officer of TNB REMACO. “We are delighted to have been selected by TNB REMACO and PGB to meet their growing needs,” said Dan Heintzelman, president and chief executive officer for GE Energy Services. TNB REMACO and PGB will both benefit from this long-term service agreement because they will have access to GE’s best practices in operational and maintenance activities. It also will allow them to keep at the forefront of future technology enhancements.”
CUF is situated in the IPCs in Kertih, Terengganu, and Gebeng, Pahang. CUF in both places operate independently of the national grid. The types of utilities produced by CUF include steam, electricity, industrial gases and water. It is designed and built for the production of utilities mainly to achieve economies of scale and continuous supply.
