Banten Coal Terminal is a proposed coal terminal in Banten province, Indonesia.
The terminal is proposed for Banten, the westernmost province on the island of Java. The map below shows Banten, but not the exact location of the project.
State electricity company PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PLN) and Gama Corp are jointly developing coal terminal in Banten, in the western tip of Java Island, with estimated investment of Rp2 trillion. Project construction was inaugurated by President Joko Widodo in October 2017. The coal terminal will have the capacity to accommodate 20 million tons of coal. Unit 1 of the coal terminal is scheduled to start commercial operation in April 2020 and Unit 2 in October 2020. Coal from the terminal will be supplied to coal fired power plants in West Java including Banten Suralaya power station, Pelabuhan Ratu power station, Banten Lontar power station, and the proposed Jawa-7 power station.
However, as of September 2021, there have been no updates on the terminal's construction since its inauguration in 2017. The project has likely been delayed or mothballed due to unknown reasons.
