Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd. announced that it will build an overhaul facility for gas turbines in Malaysia.

To better serve customers in Asia, Kawasaki established Kawasaki Gas Turbine Asia Sdn. Bhd. (KGA) in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia in 1999. Since then, KGA has marketed gas turbine generators and provided customer services in the region. Now, with this projected overhaul facility, Kawasaki aims to enhance its after-sales services in Asia, where the recent economic growth has led to increased demand for gas turbine cogeneration systems.

The facility will have a floor space of 1,270 m2 on a 5,180 m2 site near Kuala Lumpur, and will carry out disassembly of engine, inspection, repair and replacement of parts, assembly, and operation testing for 6 to 8 MW gas turbines, main models in Asia.

Currently, KGA can only handle maintenance services on the customer’s site. Overhaul works involving disassembly of engine, repair, and operation testing are performed in the Akashi Works. Construction of this new overhaul facility will enable all after-sales services to be performed locally by KGA, providing users with more cohesive and thorough services.

The project is currently in the design phase, with construction scheduled to begin in early 2012 and operations in November 2012. The facility will have a capacity to overhaul 24 units a year.
