YTL Power International Berhad has completed the acquisition of Tuaspring Pte Ltd’s 396MW combined cycle gas turbine power plant in Singapore by its wholly-owned subsidiary, YTL PowerSeraya Pte Limited.

The original purchase consideration of SGD331.45 million (US$241 million), which was to be settled via a combination of cash, together with shares and shareholder loans in the holding company of YTL PowerSeraya, was reduced to a purely cash consideration of SGD270.0 million (US$196 million) on completion.

Dato’ Yeoh Seok Hong, Managing Director of YTL Power, said, “Tuaspring’s combined cycle power station complements the Group’s existing power generation assets in Singapore, creating significant synergies across our portfolio of utility businesses. The Tuaspring plant is one of the most technologically advanced assets on Singapore’s power generation grid and this was a sound opportunity to acquire a well-structured, operating asset with a proven operational track record, enabling us to consolidate our power generation capacity in Singapore”.

The power station was commissioned in 2016 and was originally constructed as part of a desalination project under a private public partnership project with PUB, Singapore's National Water Agency. The water desalination plant was subsequently taken over by PUB in 2019, whilst YTL PowerSeraya has now acquired the power station.
