Press release date: June 23, 2014
• Four Co-generation units with H class technology
• Electrical capacity totaling 1,220 MW el, thermal capacity of 1,480 tph
• Order includes long-term service agreement

Siemens in a consortium with MMC Engineering Services Sdn Bhd (MMCES) of Malaysia has received an order from Malaysia's state-owned petroleum corporation, PETRONAS, for the turnkey construction of the Pengerang Co-generation Plant (PCP) in Malaysia. The order requires Siemens to undertake the turnkey construction of the PCP, which comprises four co-generation units along with a long-term maintenance and services contract. Each unit comes with 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.
The PCP will be able to produce approximately 1,220 megawatts of power and up to 1,480 tonnes per hour of steam for the Pengerang Integrated Complex (PIC), PETRONAS' mega development in Pengerang, Southern Johor, Malaysia. The PCP will be one of the largest and most efficient gas-fired power plants in Malaysia.
"We are very pleased with this order, which gives us the opportunity to demonstrate our technology leadership and expertise in building turnkey power plants," says Roland Fischer, CEO of Siemens Energy's Power Generation Division. "Our H class technology has proven to be successful 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."
"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," assured PETRONAS' Vice President Infrastructure & Utilities, Mr Pramod Kumar Karunakaran.
PCP's first co-generation unit is expected to go online by mid-2017, and it will also supply power to the National Grid for public consumption. The remaining co-generation units will supply to PIC's facilities.
Highly efficient combined cycle power plants and related services are part of the Siemens environmental portfolio. Around 43 percent of its total revenue stems from green products and solutions, making the company one of the world's largest providers of environmental technologies.
