Malaysia’s state-owned petroleum firm Petronas has awarded a contract to Siemens for the turnkey construction of the Pengerang Co-generation Plant (PCP) in Malaysia.

The contract states Siemens will enter a consortium with MMC Engineering Services (MMCES) to construct the PCP, which will feature four co-generation units.

The order also includes a long-term service agreement.

Each of the four co-generation units will comprise an H class gas turbine, a waste-heat recovery steam generator, a steam turbine, associated mechanical and electrical systems and the instrumentation and control system.

Siemens Energy Power Generation Division CEO Roland Fischer said that the H class technology has proven its capability in commercial operation.

"Nine of these turbines are being used commercially with excellent results for generating power reliably, economically and with low impact on the environment," Fischer said.

"The H class technology has proven its capability in commercial operation."

The PCP can generate approximately 1,220MW of power and up to 1,480t per hour of steam for the Pengerang Integrated Complex (PIC), which is Petronas’ mega development in Pengerang, Southern Johor, Malaysia.

Expected to be one of the largest and most efficient gas-fired power plants in the nation, the PCP will also supply power to the National Grid for public consumption while the remaining co-generation units will supply PIC’s facilities.

The PCP’s first co-generation unit is slated to go online by mid-2017.

Petronas vice infrastructure & utilities president Pramod Kumar Karunakaran said, "With the PCP, Petronas will not only be supplying reliable steam and power to petrochemicals plant and other facilities in PIC, but we will also be able to supply to the Malaysian Grid in an environmentally-friendly manner."
