JOHOR, MALAYSIA – February 24, 2021
GE (NYSE: GE), CTCI Corporation (CTCI), and Southern Power Generation Sdn Bhd (SPG) today announced the start of commercial operation for Southern Power Generation’s Track 4A Power Plant, a 1,440-megawatt combined cycle gas power plant in Pasir Gudang, Johor, Malaysia. This site will feature GE’s first 9HA.02 Combined-Cycle Power Plant in commercial operation today. This plant was safely constructed with the Taiwanese EPC partner, CTCI, and consists of two generating blocks, each equipped with the highly efficient gas turbine, a steam turbine, a generator, and a Heat Recovery Steam Generator (HRSG) from GE. In addition, under the terms of a 21-year agreement, GE will provide services and digital solutions to improve asset visibility, reliability, and availability of the Track 4A plant—which will produce the equivalent electricity needed to power approximately three million homes in Malaysia.
“We have a longstanding relationship with GE and we trust its HA technology will help us meet the increasing power demand and contribute to long-term energy security needs in Malaysia” said Dato’ Haji Nor Azman bin Mufti, Chairman of SPG. “We are proud to see how GE has adapted with hard work and efficiency to achieve the start of their first ever commercial operation for the 9HA.02 gas turbines despite the COVID-19 pandemic without compromising on health and safety”.
