The plant's currently operating 4 x 28 MW units power PT Amman Mineral's mining activities at the Batu Hijau copper mine in West Nusa Tenggara.[1][2]

In January 2018, PT Amman Mineral received environmental permits to construct a smelter near the Batu Hijau copper mine, which would require additional power facilities in order to operate.[3] In June 2018 the bidding to build two additional units was won by Taihao International, Hydropower International, and Shanghai Electric Power Construction Joint Venture.[4] The project will cost 1.5 billion yuan.[4] In June 2019 construction of the smelter was in the Front End Engineering Development (FEED) phase and the overall project was described as being 13.6% complete by PT Amman Mineral Nusa Tenggara.[5] In November 2019 the Nusa Tenggara provincial government appointed a committee whose purpose is to increase coordination and accelerate construction of the smelter.[6] In November 2019 the plant was described as having a capacity of 300-500 MW.[6]

In April 2020, PT Amman Mineral requested to delay completion of the smelter by 18 months, pushing the target completion back from 2022 to 2023/2024.[7] Delayed completion of the smelter will likely delay completion of the 2 x 150 MW power station expansion as well.

In August 2022, Amman Mineral stated that they would be developing a three unit gas-fired power station at the site.[8]

In January 2023, Planet imagery suggested that Units 5 and 6 of the coal-fired project had not progressed. The two additional units were presumed cancelled.
