The first two units of the plant were built in 2012 and used circulating fluidized bed combustion. The plant is also described as 2 x 25 MW in size.[1][2]

As of September 2022, the power station co-fired with rice husk and other types of organic biomass.[3]

In April 2023, the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources identified Amurang power station as a potential target for an early retirement program.[4]
