Construction on the $237.8m project is scheduled to commence at the end of November 2016 and is likely to be completed by the middle of 2019.

Planned to be built within the existing Tanjung Kidurong (Bintulu) power station, the project will feature advanced gas turbine technology and more efficient combined cycle gas turbines to replace the open cycle turbines presently in place.

Sarawak Energy group CEO Datuk Torstein Dale SjØtveit said: “The new and advanced technology will generate electricity at a higher efficiency and output, enabling us to meet growing demand of Sarawak’s organic load.”
