Supercritical coal power plant synchronised to Malaysian power grid

Alstom and TNB Janamanung Sdn Bhd successfully achieved the synchronization of the 1,000 MW Manjung supercritical coal-fired power plant in Perak to the Malaysian grid.

Alstom’s scope in the contract includes engineering, procurement, construction and commissioning of the 1,000 MW steam turbine, a generator, supercritical boiler and auxiliaries as well as ALSPA Series 6 distributed control system and advanced environmental control systems to cut emissions.

The 1,000 MW Manjung plant is the first coal-fired power plant in Malaysia utilising Alstom’s advanced equipment and technology, and is the single largest unit in South East Asia. This power plant will produce sufficient electricity to power nearly 2 million households in Malaysia, and is aligned with the country’s energy diversification policy to create a more balanced portfolio of power generation sources that includes gas, coal and renewables power generation in the country.
