Marubeni Corporation has been awarded an engineering, procurement and construction (EPC) contract worth about $220m for the biomass and clean coal cogeneration plant Stage 2A by TP Utilities Pte Ltd, a subsidiary of Tuas Power, in Singapore.

TPU is building an integrated utility complex to provide one-stop utility solutions to companies in the Tembusu area of Jurong Island, which Singapore’s government aims to develop as a petrochemicals hub.

Marubeni won the EPC contract for Stage 1 of TPU’s Tembusu project in February 2010, which covers a circulating fluidised bed (CFB) boiler from Sumitomo Heavy Industries, a turbine generator supplied by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries and two gas-fired boilers for the biomass-clean coal (BMCC) cogeneration plant, and is due to complete in 2012.

Stage 2A of the project will comprise one CFB boiler with a capacity of 450 tonnes/hour, a 32.5 MW turbine generator and another gas-fired boiler with a capacity of 200 tonnes/hour. This new expansion project is scheduled to be completed in the first half of 2014.
