TENAGA Nasional Bhd’s (TNB) wholly owned subsidiary, TNB Repair And Maintenance Sdn. Bhd. (TNB REMACO) has been awarded a RM160 million contract for the maintenance of gas turbines and related equipment of Petronas Gas Bhd (PetGas) facilities in Kerteh, Terengganu, and Gebeng, Pahang.


           The six-year long-term service agreement contract expires in 2022 and will coincide with the completion of nine hot gas path inspections, as well as nine major inspections for the GE MS6001B gas turbine.


       “The contract will also include maintenance of the auxiliary, control and instrumentation systems. Its scope will be for the supply of turbine spare parts, manpower supply during the inspections and refurbishment of the turbine components,” TNB REMACO said in a statement yesterday.


        It added that the refurbishment of the gas turbine components will be conducted at its repair centre in Klang, as part of its effort to maximise local content in the implementation of the contract.


         The agreement builds on an ongoing partnership between General Electric Co (GE) and TNB  REMACO as a long-term commitment to growing energy demand in the country.


       The company also executed a separate multi-year maintenance programme with the consortium of GE Global Parts & Products GmbH and GE Power Systems (M) Sdn. Bhd. to ensure support from GE as the original equipment manufacturer of the equipment.


     The programme involves the supply of spare parts, technical advisory and technical training throughout the period of the agreement.
