A Malaysian industrial complex is to be provided with heat and power by a new cogeneration unit to be installed by Siemens.
The plant is part of an overall $11bn investment in the Pengerang Integrated Complex (PIC) in the state of Johor and the engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning contract was awarded by Pengerang Power Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of Petronas,
The combined heat and power plant is one of the six facilities in the pipeline within the Pengerang Integrated Complex (PIC) involved in the investment.
“The plant’s first cogeneration unit is expected to be commercially operational by mid-2017,” the statement said. “Once completed, Pengerang Co-generation Plant will be able to produce 1,220 MW of power and will provide reliable and continuous supply of steam of up to 1,480 tonnes per hour to the PIC.”
The board of Petronas gave the green light last month for a $16 billion refinery and petrochemical integrated development (Rapid), also within the PIC, that is scheduled to start refinery operations by early 2019.
