2,000 MW coal-fired power plant begins construction in Malaysia

Construction work has started on the proposed $2.6bn Jimah East Power (JEP) plant project in Jimah, Port Dickson, south of Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia.

Energy Business Review reports that the 2,000 MW ultra-supercritical coal-fired power plant will feature two greenfield power units at the Port Dickson strategic site.

The plant is key to the security of power supply in Peninsula Malaysia and its power will be sold to electric power company Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB) under a 25-year power purchase agreement.

TNB owns 70 per cent stake in the project through the acquisition of Edra Global Energy’s stake in Jimah East Power (JEP), a joint venture company formed by Mitsui and 1Malaysia Development Berhad (1MDB) to construct and operate the ultra-super critical coal-fired power plant.

The first unit of the project is scheduled to commence in June 2019 followed by second unit in December 2019.

In 2015, Hyundai Engineering awarded two contracts to Jacobs Engineering to provide civil and structural design services for the balance of plant facilities and the cooling water intake and discharge system for Jimah East power project.
