Manjung power station
|This article is part of the CoalSwarm coverage of Malaysia and coal|
The Manjung power station (also known as the Janamanjung power station or the Sultan Azlan Shah Power Plant) is a 4,100 megawatt (MW) coal-fired power station in Perak, Malaysia.
The undated satellite photo below shows the plant, which is located on a reclaimed island off the western coast of the state of Perak, around 10 km south of Lumut and 288 km north of Kuala Lumpurin in the district of Seri Manjung.
Background on Plant
Alstom reported that a 1,000 MW supercritical unit 4 was synchronized in September 2014, although other reports are that when the plant entered operation later in April 2015, it was 1,080 MW and ultra-supercritical.
The boiler for Unit 4 was manufactured in Wuhan Boiler Company, a Chinese manufacturing facility of which Alstom acquired a 51 per cent stake in 2007.
A contract was signed in August 2013 for construction of Unit 5, which was expected to begin in January 2014 and be completed by October 2017.
In May 2017 it was reported the plant was planned for commissioning in October 2017.
Unit 5 was reported as operational in September 2017.
