French engineering group Alstom has secured a contract worth over EUR650m ($928.78m) from TNB Janamanjung to provide power generation equipment for a 1,000MW supercritical coal-fired plant in Manjung, Malaysia.

Under the contract, the company will engineer, procure, construct and commission a 1,000MW steam turbine, a generator, a supercritical boiler and auxiliaries.

Alstom will also supply and install its latest ALSPA Series 6 distributed control system and environmental control systems to cut emissions.

The unit, which will generate enough electricity to power nearly two million households, is expected to begin operation in 2015.

TNB Janamanjung is a subsidiary of Malaysia’s state-controlled power generation, transmission and distribution company Tenaga Nasional Bhd.
