GE Turbines for New Brunei Combined-Cycle Plant
GE Energy will supply the power equipment for the Bukit Panggal Combined-Cycle Power Plant-Phase I, a project in the Tutong region of Brunei Darussalam that will add approximately 110 MW of capacity to the country's electrical generation system. GE will supply two Frame 6B gas turbines, a GE SC4 single-flow steam turbine and three generators.
The new plant will be owned and operated by Brunei's Ministry of Development, through the Department of Electrical Services and is scheduled to enter service in July of 2006. GE Energy is part of a consortium named GEMC, led by Marubeni Corporation of Japan, that has a partnering agreement with Toshiba Plant Systems and Services Corporation, also of Japan.
The gas turbines will be manufactured at GE Energy's facilities in Belfort, France, and the steam turbine at GE's plant in Schenectady, N.Y. The gas turbine-generators are scheduled for shipment in March of 2006 and the steam turbine-generator in June of 2006.
