GE’s Power Services business has opened its first dedicated Asia Pacific tooling center in Port Klang, Malaysia. The new tooling center will serve more than 300 cross-fleet power generation and oil and gas assets in more than 10 countries across Asia Pacific.
The new facility will feature more than 500 different tool kits that will be used to dismantle, assemble, test, diagnose, and increase the productivity of more than 300 installed gas and steam turbines, gas compressors, and generators across the region. It also further expands GE’s network of power tooling locations which includes facilities around the world in the United States, Europe, Middle East, India and China.
“This new GE facility will provide our customers with solutions that improve plant efficiency and reliability,” said Anders Maltesen, general manager–Asia Pacific for GE’s Power Services. “With the new center in Malaysia, regional operators can expect improved and faster services from a site that is located much closer to them. The center will be the single point of contact for tooling requests and will help increase the speed of tooling fulfillment by up to 50%. This project opened effective discussions on future collaboration between GE and local authorities, adding value to Malaysia’s economic growth. GE is proud that the center is completely staffed by local engineers and technician. Being located at the heart of the region, access to the region’s seaports and airports are improved with excellent road networks that link major growth centers.”
