KUALA LUMPUR — May 6, 2016: Pengerang Power Sdn. Bhd., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Petronas, yesterday signed a power purchase agreement to supply electricity to Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) from its co-generation plant within the Pengerang Integrated Complex (PIC) in Johor.

Pengerang Power is expected to commence commercial operation and supply 400MW to TNB beginning June next year, to be followed by an additional 200MW from January 2019. The contract is for 21 years.

This agreement for the sale of electricity from a co-generation facility is the first of its kind in Malaysia. The plant is one of six associated facilities being developed at the PIC.

Apart from generating power, it will produce steam for consumption within the PIC. Inclusive of a back-up capacity to ensure reliability of supply, the plant will have a nominal capacity of 1,729MW.

This plant will be one of the biggest co-generation power plants in the region, using Siemens’ latest H-class gas turbine technology together with a unique dual steam turbine configuration to ensure highest efficiency. — Bernama
