Background on Project
In November 2014, Adaro Indonesia and Shenhua Group signed an agreement to build a two-unit, 600-MW mine-mouth coal-fired power plant in East Kalimantan Province. The project's developers plan to bring the plant online in 2019. According to a September 2015 presentation by Adaro Energy, the project will use low heat value coal. Pre-feasibility and feasibility studies will begin soon on the power project and the related coal mine. The project will use non-recourse project debt financing. As of November 2016, it is reported that the project continues in the feasibility study stage.
As of November 2019 there had been no further news about this project and it appears to be cancelled.
