GE Power Services has signed a 21-year deal with Malaysia’s Southern Power Generation for a 1440 MW combined-cycle power plant.

The Track 4A plant in Pasir Gudang, Johor, is under construction and under the terms of the agreement, GE will provide services solutions for two GE 9HA.02 gas turbines – the first to be installed in Malaysia.

It will also deploy its Predix Asset Performance Management software to help  improve asset visibility, reliability and availability of the plant and also utilize its Fleet360* platform of gas plant solutions.

“With the largest base of installed gas turbines in Malaysia, GE has grown hand in hand with the country’s power development needs,” said Ramesh Singaram, president of GE Power APAC.

The agreement also includes GE’s Predix APM suite of digital solutions. APM improves asset visibility, reliability and availability and reduces operating and maintenance costs: data processed by the APM solution can help balance maintenance costs, improve inspection intervals and provide invaluable insights into operational risks.Track 4A plant in Malaysia

Data collected from sensors throughout the facility will be monitored at GE’s Monitoring & Diagnostics Centre in Kuala Lumpur.

The plant will be jointly constructed with Taiwanese EPC partner, CTCI Corporation. It will consist of two generating blocks, each equipped with a 9HA.02 gas turbine, generator and heat recovery steam generator from GE.
