GE Helped Power Ultra-Supercritical Coal-Fired Power Plant in Malaysia

GE (NYSE: GE) executed the engineering, procurement and construction agreement for a 1,000-MW ultra-supercritical coal-fired power plant in Malaysia.

As part of a €1 billion ($1.1 billion) contract, GE’s Steam Power systems unit, together with consortium partners Mudajaya and Shin Eversenda, helped to bring the Tanjung Bin Energy Power Plant (T4) to commercial operation. Ground broke on the plant in March 2012 and construction was completed on schedule. GE was the leader of the consortium, and engineered and supplied key equipment and was responsible for the overall integration and commissioning of the plant.

The plant, owned by Malakoff Corporation Berhad, uses GE’s steam turbine and generator, ultra-supercritical boiler, and GE’s proprietary low NOx burners, seawater flue gas desulphurization facility and fabric filters.
