6FA Heavy Duty Gas Turbine

General Electric (GE) will be supplying three Frame 6FA gas turbines, associated generators and services for the 300MW combined cycle gas-fired Kimanis Power Plant in Sabah. The gas turbines are expected to be shipped in the first quarter of next year (2012), with commercial operation scheduled to begin in the fourth quarter of 2013.

In a statement, GE said that the gas turbines are well-suited for combined-cycle, industrial and cogeneration applications with its output range, high exhaust energy and robust design. More than 100 units have been installed worldwide and have completed more than three million hours of service, making the 6FA gas turbine one of the most extensively used gas turbines in its class.
