Ranhill Holdings Berhad (Ranhill) welcomed the visit of the new US Ambassador to Malaysia Kamala Lakhdhir, to its power plant at the Kota Kinabalu Industrial Park (KKIP) on Friday, May 5.
Ranhill owns and operates two combined cycle power plants, each rated at 190 MW in Sabah, contributing 380 MW electricity-generating capacity and electricity production for 21 years.
"The Combined Cycle Gas Turbines (CCGT) use both a gas and a steam turbine together to produce up to 50 percent more electricity from the same fuel than a traditional simple-cycle plant" said Dr Zahrul Faizi, Chief Executive Officer of Ranhill Power Division.
"This enables us to reduce our carbon footprint and produce clean energy for Sabah" he added.
Ranhill has more than 15 years of operational expertise in producing clean energy and is the primary independent power producer in Sabah.
It is contributing about 37% of the maximum load demand to the State and has consistently improved its plant reliability performance to surpass the industry average in the past few years.
