Independent power producer TNB Janamanjung is leading the way as the operator of Southeast Asia’s first ultra-supercritical (USC) coal-fired power plant – generating 1000 megawatts (MW) – to produce enough electricity to power nearly two million households in Malaysia.
Operational since early 2015, the Manjung 4 plant is playing its part in meeting demand for energy throughout Malaysia that is tipped in the World Energy Markets Observatory (WEMO) 2017 report, to increase by 4.8% per annum right up to 2030.
With coal set to be one of the primary fuels in Malaysia’s future energy mix, Manjung 4’s USC technologies enable large scale energy production in accordance with stringent environmental standards reducing emissions by 4-5% compared to previous units. GE supplied the full engineering, procurement and engineering expertise and equipment for Manjung 4 including its boiler, steam turbine, generator, and the complete set of Air Quality Control Systems.
This video highlights how Manjung 4 is exceeding original performance commitments with high flexibility, and availability, that has been recognized with awards from Asian Power and the International Project Management Association.
