French engineering group Alstom SA has signed a 11-year Long Term Service Agreement (LTSA) worth Euro 150 million or approximately RM 600 million, with Teknik Janakuasa Sdn. Bhd. (TJSB), the wholly owned O&M subsidiary company of Malakoff Corporation Berhad, Malaysia’s largest independent power producer (IPP).
The LTSA covers all nine GT13E2 gas turbines and the scope includes the supply of new hot gas path components and provision of reconditioning services for all major inspections over the term of the contract.
The Lumut power plant is located in Segari in the state of Perak, west of the Peninsula Malaysia. It consists of three combined cycle blocks each equipped with three GT13E2 units running on natural gas with oil as back-up fuel. With a total electricity output of 1,943 MW, it is the largest GT13E2-based combined cycle power plant worldwide.

This contract follows an earlier 7-year service agreement with TJSB for the Lumut plant, which has been in operation since 2004.
“The extension of the service contract at Lumut reflects TJSB’s confidence in Alstom’s support and our successful performance. The well proven cooperation between TJSB and Alstom will ensure continued safe operation and high availability of the Lumut power plant,” remarked Hans-Peter Meer, Senior Vice President, Alstom Thermal Services.
“Given Teknik Janakuasa is both focused and dedicated to improving the performance of our installed base of 1,950 MW turbines at Lumut, we believe this Agreement with Alstom will help us with our long term assest management coverage as well as optimising our annual energy production ~ key factors for success in today’s challenging energy industry,” added En.
