Businesses

We operate across a number of business sectors in Malaysia:

Aviation:

GE Aviation’s presence in Malaysia dates back to over 25 years ago when the national carrier, Malaysia Airlines, began using GE’s engines for their A300 and DC10 aircrafts. Incorporated in 1997, GE Engine Services Malaysia partnered with Malaysia Airlines to establish a Center of Excellence for CFM56 engines. Today, the 21- year old engine maintenance, repair and overhaul facility in Subang serves over 40 airlines globally and is proud to have a staff of more than 300 local technicians as part of GE’s commitment to developing the country and its talents.

  • As one of the largest single firm aircraft orders in aviation history, AirAsia in 2011 selected CFM International’s advanced LEAP engine to power 200 Airbus A320neo aircraft. To support the new LEAP- powered A320neo fleet, AirAsia has signed a 20-year service agreement with CFM to provide comprehensive engine maintenance service.
  • In 2013, AirAsia placed a $8.6 billion order for additional CFM LEAP-1A engines and CFM56-5B engines to power 100 Airbus A320 aircraft together with a long-term service agreement to support the fleet.

Power:

With the largest base of installed gas turbines in Malaysia, GE has grown hand-in-hand with the country’s power development needs. GE’s relationship with Malaysia’s national utility, Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB), dates back to 1984 when we first provided our gas turbine technology for the country’s first combined cycle power plant.

  • Tenaga Nasional Bhd’s (TNB) 1,000 MW ultra-supercritical coal-fired power plant dubbed as Manjung 4 was powered up in April 2015, a joint project that was built by GE and its consortium partner China National Machinery Import and Export Corp. It has received awards from Asian Power and International Project Management Association for its world class EPC capabilities delivering on both power and environmental commitment.
  • In March 2016, GE announced that Malakoff Corporation Berhad’s (Malakoff) 1,000-megawatt (MW) Tanjung Bin Energy Power Plant (T4) has entered commercial operation on schedule. In a contract worth globally over €1 billion, GE’s Steam Power Systems, together with its consortium partners Mudajaya and Shin Eversendai, has executed the engineering, procurement and construction agreement for the plant. The ultra-supercritical, coal-fired power plant, which commenced construction in March 2012, was completed on schedule in four years. It also received the Gold Award from Asian Power 2016 for EPC of the year. As of 2018, the Manjung 4 plant and the T4 plant are the only ultra-supercritical (USC) plants situated in ASEAN.
  • In December 2016, GE’s Power Services launched the Remote Monitoring and Diagnostics Centre (M&D) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. More than 200 gas and steam turbines, boilers and generators in over 70 power plants across 10 countries gained access to remote monitoring and diagnostics services that help increase plant performance through data analytics. The new M&D Centre is Power Services’ first- of-its-kind facility in the Asia Pacific region and is the latest addition to GE’s Power Services global network of M&D Center.
  • In March 2018, GE’s Power Services business signed a multiyear agreement with Southern Power Generation Sdn Bhd for its new Track 4A plant, a 1,440-megawatt combined-cycle power plant in Pasir Gudang, Johor. Under the terms of the 21-year agreement, GE will provide services solutions for first two GE 9HA.02 gas turbines to be installed in the country and deploy its Predix Asset Performance Management (APM) software to help improve asset visibility, reliability and availability of SPG’s plant, contributing to long term energy security need in the country.

GE’s community efforts in Malaysia are driven by a vibrant citizenship movement.
