Hyundai Engineering Co. has awarded Jacob Engineering Group two contracts for Jimah East power project. Jacobs will provide engineering services for the balance of plant facilities and the cooling water intake and discharge system respectively for a 2000 MW ultra-super-critical coal-fired power generation project in Port Dickson, approximately 60 km south of Kuala Lumpurin, Malaysia.

The Jimah East power project involves building two units of 1000 MW power plant. Most notably, the plants are expected to be highly efficient and environmentally friendly by minimising greenhouse gas emissions with ultra-super-critical pressure generation. The project is anticipated to be commissioned in two stages in 2018 and 2019.

Jacobs will provide detailed civil and structural design for the balance of plant (BOP) facilities and for the cooling water intake and discharge system. The civil scope comprises bulk earthworks, storm water drainage, underground sewer utilities, fencing and coordination of various underground services, while the structural scope covers foundation design for all BOP components and design for the cooling water intake and discharge system components. Services also include geotechnical design and local authority submissions, as well as construction phase services.

Jacobs Group Vice President, Peter Brettell, commented: “Jacobs has extensive experience in providing services for power projects throughout the region. We’re delighted to contribute our experience to this important project for Malaysia as it continues to expand its power generation capacity to service its rapidly growing economy and strengthen the national grid.”
