Background on Project

In December 2015, PT. Bantaeng Sigma Energi (BSE) contracted with China Mechanical Engineering to build a 2 x 300 MW coal-fired plant in Banten province.[1] As of May 2016, the plant was going to be built in Papangloe Village, Pajukkukang District, along Pajukkukang coast of Banten, but construction had not begun.[2]

In May 2019, a new contract was announced under which China National Construction Planning and Design Group Zhongnan Institute would build a 2 x 300 MW plant at a site to be determined in Banten.[3]

As of June 2021, there have been no subsequent developments at the power station, and the project appears to be shelved. In May 2023, with no apparent news in four years, the project was presumed to be cancelled.
