CHP solution helps Gas Malaysia improve energy efficiency and reduce carbon emissions

Gas Malaysia Bhd (Gas Malaysia) remains steadfast in its commitment to position itself as an innovative energy solutions provider through combined heat and power (CHP) technology.

CHP systems, also known as cogeneration, produce both electricity and heat from a single fuel source.

Gas Malaysia chief executive officer Ahmad Hashimi Abdul Manap said the technology would be particularly beneficial for customers in the industrial sector who require both electricity and thermal energy such as steam and hot water.

“Gas Malaysia Energy Advance Sdn Bhd (GMEA), a joint venture between Gas Malaysia and Tokyo Gas Engineering Solutions Co Ltd (TGES), is spearheading the CHP business. GMEA operates three plants with a combined capacity to generate 41.7MW of electricity, 165tph of steam and 1,684kW of hot water, with the potential to save about 72,261 tonnes of carbon dioxide per annum,” he said in a statement today.
