Malaysian Power Plant Wins Award
A GE Energy landfill gas-to-energy plant in Malaysia, that country’s first such project, recently received first-prize honors in the renewable energy project competition at the 2005 ASEAN Energy Ministers meeting in Seam Reab, Cambodia. The landfill gas-energy project, which began commercial operation in February 2004, won first prize for “technical excellence” in the competition’s on-grid category.
GE provided two containerized Jenbacher JGC 320 GS-L.L generator sets for the Jana landfill plant that was built for TNB-ES Sdn. Bhd., a subsidiary of Tenaga Nasional Berhad. The landfill’s gas is being used to generate 2.096 MW of electricity - a plant expansion is already planned.
The Jenbacher gas engine units were supplied by JD Group Sdn. Bhd. to UK-based Organics Ltd., the project Engineering, Procurement & Construction (EPC) contractor. JD Group is GE Energy’s authorized distributor and service provider for Jenbacher gas engines in Malaysia. The plant’s developer was the Jana Landfill Sdn Bhd, a joint venture between TNB subsidiary TSPL and Worldwide Landfills Sdn Bhd, which is the company that operates the landfill. Located outside of Malaysia’s capital, Kuala Lumpur, the Jana landfill is one of the city’s main municipal storage waste sites.
