GE Power Services have signed an agreement with SPR Energy to provide comprehensive operations and maintenance (O&M) at the Kimanis Sabah combined-cycle gas-fired power plant in Malaysia for the next 18 years.

The multiyear agreement (MYA) includes GE’s first implementation of its Asset Performance Management (APM) software solution in the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) region.

The MYA covers all on-site equipment, including two GE 6B gas turbines, two heat recovery steam generators and a non-GE steam turbine. GE’s ability to provide access to parts and assets for both original equipment manufacturer (OEM) and other OEM technologies enables it to offer cross-fleet services for more than 90 different brands of equipment.

The agreement also includes the implementation of GE’s APM suite of digital solutions to improve asset visibility, reliability and availability.

The OEM-agnostic software enables valuable data from connected assets, regardless of make or model, to be analyzed 24/7 by GE’s Monitoring and Diagnostics (M&D) Center in Kuala Lumpur. From there, data is transformed into actionable insights—such as real-time diagnostics, troubleshooting and condition forecasting—that can help improve plant reliability.

“At SPR, we constantly seek catalysts and transformations that lead to sustainable growth outcomes and help meet growing power demands in the State of Sabah,” said Chris Sy Choon Yen, chief executive director of SPR Energy.

“Strategically, it makes sense for us to enlist a single trusted and credible service provider to help upgrade, manage and modernized our existing assets, which consist of equipment from various power generation companies, at our Kimanis facility.
This multiyear agreement complements our growth strategy in Malaysia and presents opportunities for us to expand our collaboration with GE in the global arena.”
