Amamapare Port power station supplies electricity solely for mining operations conducted at the Grasberg Open Pit Copper Mine.[1][2]

In December 2021, Freeport Indonesia was considering making a fuel switch from coal to LNG.[3] The possibility of a coal to gas conversion was also mentioned in July 2022.[4]

In Feburary 2023, the President Director of PT Freeport Indonesia stated: "we will also replace our PLTU (steam powered) plants with PLTG (gas-powered) plants".[5] The statement was connected to the company's plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 30% by 2030.[6]

As of October 2023, the coal-fired power station would reportedly be retired and replaced by a gas plant in 2027.[7]
