Sg Perting


The Gilkes 25” diameter twin jet Turgo impulse turbine for the Sg Perting MHP in Malaysia was an addition to an existing powerhouse owned by Amcorp Perting Hydro SDN BHD. The existing powerstation was equipped with Turgo units supplied by another manufacturer but for the Sg Perting extension it was decided to turn to the inventor of the Turgo impulse turbine, Gilkes, to ensure that the new project would be a success.

Gilkes were the successful tenderer and working together with their local representive Restu Indah SDN BHD took on the full M&E supply scope, including the importation and delivery of the equipment to the project site and a full installation service using experienced local personnel and Gilkes supervision of installation and commissioning engineers.

The addition to the station was put into commercial operation on time and on budget in April 2015.
