Background on Plant

This project is mentioned on Table 13 of the 2015-2024 PT PLN long range supply plan, scheduled for 2019 and 2020. It comprises two units of 100 MW each.[1]

A PT PLN September 2015 list of companies interested in mine-mouth IPP plants showed several companies expressing interest in Kalselteng-3, including PT Katingan Ria, PT Korindo, PT Golden Energy Mines, PT Metro Energy, PT PJB Dan and PT Prima Multi Artha, Jhonlin Energi Kalimanta, and PT Pandu Adidaya.[2]

In August 2016 PT PLN said it would put the Kalselteng-3 plant out for tender, with the selected Project Sponsor intended to develop, finance, construct and operate the Project on a Build-Own-Operate-Transfer (BOOT) basis.[3]

In the 2017-2026 long-range plan, three power plants are rescheduled to 2021-2022, with a note that the plants are being reframed as mine-mouth power plants. The goal is to achieve greater economies.[4] The plant does not appear in the 2018-2027 long-range plan. The long-range plan for 2019-2028 reschedules the two units for 2024/2025.[5] PLN has assigned responsibility for developing the plant to its subsidiary Pembangkitan Jawa Bali Investasi (PJBI).[6] In September 2020 PT PLN Persero announced that it had acquired a coal mine for the mine-mouth plant but did not give the mine's exact location.[7]
