A 1,440-MW Malaysian mixed cycle gasoline turbine plant is now commercially operational and achieves a regional milestone for the tools provider there.
The Track 4A Power Plant has began technology in Pasir Gudang, Johor. It is owned by Southern Power Generation. Partners within the challenge included GE and Taiwanese engineering, procurement and building (EPC) contractor CTCI.
The Track 4A plant options GE’s first 9HA.02 mixed cycle gasoline turbine crops in industrial operation inside Malaysia. It consists of two producing blocks, every outfitted with the gasoline turbine, steam turbine, a generator and a Heat Recovery Steam Generator (HRSG) from GE.
