Siemens, in consortium with MMC Engineering Services Sdn Bhd (MMCES) of Malaysia, has received an order from Malaysia's state-owned petroleum corporation, Petronas, for the turnkey construction of the Pengerang Cogeneration Plant (PCP) in Malaysia.
The plant will comprise four cogeneration units, each with an H class gas turbine, a heat recovery steam generator and a steam turbine. The Siemens scope includes associated mechanical and electrical systems plus instrumentation and control and a long-term maintenance and services contract.
The PCP will have an installed capacity of about 1220 MWe and up to 1480 tonnes per hour of steam for the Pengerang Integrated Complex (PIC), Petronas' mega development in Pengerang, Southern Johor. The first PCP cogen unit is expected to go on line by mid-2017, supplying power to the national grid. The remaining four co-generation units will supply power to facilities within the Pengerang Integrated Complex.
There are now nine H class gas turbines in commercial operation around the world, with a further 23 under construction or on order, including Petronas.
