Malakoff has commissioned the 1000 MW Tanjung Bin supercritical coal-fired power plant located in Johor, Malaysia.
Located adjacent to the Independent water and power producer’s existing 2100 MW coal-fired Tanjung Bin power plant (TBPP), the new clean coal power plant, also known as T4, has been developed by a global consortium of GE, Mudajaya and Shin Eversendai under a contract worth over €1bn.
Designed to generate electricity required to power two million people, the coal-fired power plant features GE’s steam turbine and generator technology, ultra-supercritical boiler and environmental control systems.
The power plant’s emissions are significantly reduced through the use of low NOx burners, an efficient seawater flue gas desulphurization facility and fabric filters to lower nitrous oxide, sulphur oxide and dust emissions.
GE Steam Power Systems CEO Andreas Lusch said: “Ultra-supercritical technology has achieved efficiencies up to 47%-above the global average rate of existing power plants of around 30%-lowering fuel consumption and emissions. Each additional percentage point in efficiency reduces carbon dioxide emissions by 2 to 3%.”
Energy Business Review reports that power generated from the facility will be sold to Tenaga Nasional Berhad (TNB), under a 25-year power purchase agreement.
