US-based multinational conglomerate GE Oil & Gas division has won a contract from Berakas Power Company (BPC) of Brunei to supply its ORegen waste-heat recovery systems for the gas fired Berakas Power Station.

BPC will install the waste heat recovery system to increase the output and efficiency of four GE LM2500 aeroderivative gas turbines at the power plant located outside the capital city of Bandar Seri Begawan.

The ORegen system utilizes a thermodynamic superheat cycle to recover waste heat from gas turbines and convert it into 14MW of extra net electricity without using fuel or water and does not produce additional emissions.

GE Oil & Gas Asia Pacific Regional general manager Visal Leng said, "Our ORegen project for BPMC illustrates how GE is working successfully to deploy a wide range of technologies and services to boost Brunei’s energy efficiency in line with their strategic objectives."

The company will supply its ORegen system for the plant and its consortium partner Boustead International Heaters (BIH) will provide heat exchanger components as part of the package.

The project upgrade will help Brunei meet its growing power demand and also meet its "Green Brunei" initiative to promote energy efficiency and develop cleaner energy projects.

ORegen system will be connected to three of the LM2500 units, each generating up to 22MW, while the fourth LM2500 turbine and one waste heat recovery unit will be kept on reserve.
