GE (NYSE: GE) announced the commissioning of the first Frame 6FA gas turbine supplied to the Ranhill Powertron II plant, which will be the largest and most efficient independent power plant in the state of Sabah, East Malaysia. The 190-megawatt, combined-cycle facility will provide power to support the region’s rapid growth and will support the Malaysian government’s energy strategy to promote cleaner and more efficient power generation.

“Malaysia peak demand growth is projected to average about 3% per year until the year 2020, and the demand is particularly strong in Sabah, a rapidly developing rural area where the economy is experiencing dynamic growth. The new plant will help Sabah meet its short-term energy needs while also playing a key role in the overall enhancement of the region’s energy infrastructure,” said Mrs. Norlian Abd. Rahim, CEO of Ranhill Power Sdn Bhd.

Both Ranhill Powertron I and II are owned by Ranhill Power Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of Ranhill Bhd. Based in Kuala Lumpur, Ranhill is one of Malaysia’s largest companies and is a leading engineering corporation, focusing on industrial sectors essential to the nation’s growth, including oil and gas, power, water and infrastructure.

“Many countries around the world, such as Malaysia, are seeking to meet their growing power demands in a responsible manner,” said John Reinker, general manager-gas turbine combined cycle product line, for GE Power & Water. “Our proven, high-efficiency, advanced F-class gas turbine technology helps meet that goal by offering lower fuel consumption and improved environmental performance, compared to plants with older technology.”

GE supplied two Frame 6FA gas turbine-generator packages, training and technical advisory services and performance testing. The plant commenced operation in simple cycle service with the commissioning of the first turbine and is expected to enter into combined-cycle operation by the fourth quarter of this year.

GE and Ranhill also signed a 21-year contractual service agreement that covers repairs, upgrades and outage services for the turbines.

GE Frame 6FA gas turbines have compiled more than 2.5 million operating hours in 30 countries worldwide. The mid-sized member of GE’s fleet of F technology gas turbines, the 6FA gas turbine is designed for high efficiency, flexibility and reliability in a wide range of applications. In 2009, GE reached a milestone by shipping its 100th 6FA gas turbine.
