Project-level captive use details
- Captive industry use (heat or power): other metals & mining
- Captive industry: Power
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. In June 2018 the bidding to build two additional units was won by Taihao International, Hydropower International, and Shanghai Electric Power Construction Joint Venture. The project will cost 1.5 billion yuan. 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. In November 2019 the Nusa Tenggara provincial government appointed a committee whose purpose is to increase coordination and accelerate construction of the smelter. In November 2019 the plant was described as having a capacity of 300-500 MW.
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. 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.
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.
