GE steam turbine technology powers 1000MW plant in Malaysia

Published on: 

GE recently announced that the Malakoff Corp. Berhad’s 1000 MW Tanjung Bin Energy power plant (T4) has entered commercial operation on schedule, in four years. The construction of the ultra-supercritical, coal-fired power plant commenced in March 2012.

GE’s Steam Power Systems,  with its consortium partners Mudajaya and Shin Eversenda, executed the engineering, procurement and construction agreement for the plant, which was part of a contract worth over €1 billion., was completed on schedule in four years.

GE was the leader of the consortium, engineered and supplied key equipment and was responsible for the overall integration and commissioning of the plant. The plant operates on GE steam turbine and generator technology, boiler and environmental control systems. The emissions at the plant are significantly reduced through the use of low NOx burners, a highly efficient seawater flue gas desulfurization facility and fabric filters to lower nitrous oxide, sulfur oxide and dust emissions.


Malakoff is an independent water and power producer (IPP) with core focuses on power generation, water desalination and operation and maintenance services. In Malaysia, Malakoff accounts for a net generating capacity of 6346 MW from six power plants.
