Senoko Energy has, this week, started up two natural gas-fired power stations and says the plants will add 862 MW in capacity to Singapore’s grid.

In a move to cut down carbon dioxide emissions, the Singaporean power producer has converted three oil-fired 250 MW steam plants into two eco-friendly gas-fired combined cycle plants (CCPs).
The power generator has invested S$1 billion ($808m) in converting the three oil-fired plants with 750MW combined capacity to the gas systems.

The company plans to use liquefied natural gas from Jurong Island receiving terminal in Singapore for power generation. The facility is expected to begin operations in the second quarter of 2013.
