Keppel Merlimau Cogen Plant (KMC Plant) is the first independent power project to enter the Singapore electricity market since the New Energy Market of Singapore was implemented in January 2003.
Located in the Tembusu sector of Jurong Island, the KMC Plant is well-positioned to support the surrounding industries with their electricity, steam supply and demineralised water requirements. The plant is connected to the electricity transmission network of Singapore.
The combined cycle gas turbine generation facility has been operating since 2007 with a good track record of efficiency and reliability. The plant was constructed in two phases. Phase I has a generation capacity of 500 MW, and commenced commercial operation in April 2007. The plant completed an expansion of two power trains of 400 MW each in March and July 2013 respectively.
