Yokogawa Electric Corporation announces that its affiliate, Yokogawa Kontrol (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd., has received an order from the CTCI Consortium*1, to supply control systems and field devices for the Kimanis combined cycle power plant*2, which is being built for Kimanis Power Sdn. Bhd. in the Malaysian state of Sabah, in the northeast part of Borneo island.
The Kimanis combined cycle power plant will have a total output of 300 MW (three 100 MW units). The first 100 MW units, now under construction, are scheduled to start operation in December 2013.
This order is for a comprehensive range of control and instrumentation including the CENTUM® VP integrated production control systems for the power plant’s boilers and its boiler and turbine auxiliary facilities; the ProSafe®-RS safety instrumented system for safely shutting down the plant if any abnormal conditions occur; exhaust gas analyzers; and differential pressure/pressure transmitters. Yokogawa Kontrol (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd. will be responsible for project execution, including engineering, installation, and commissioning services.
Yokogawa was able to win this order thanks to strengths such as its extensive track record in providing control systems for combined cycle power plants and the excellent engineering capabilities of Yokogawa Kontrol (Malaysia) Sdn. Bhd.
Malaysia has a growing economy. Along with the development of industrial complexes by the government and private sectors, power generation and transmission infrastructure is being expanded to meet the country’s rising demand for electricity. Encouraged by this order, Yokogawa will continue to expand its sales of industrial automation systems by targeting Malaysia’s growing power market.
*1 A consortium led by CTCI Corporation, the largest engineering firm in Taiwan and a supplier of engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) services to a variety of industries.
*2 A plant that uses both gas turbines and steam turbines.
