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.[2]

A PT PLN September 2015 list of companies interested in mine-mouth IPP plants did not show any companies interested in the project.[3]

In the 2016-2025 long-range plan, the project was moved forward from 2022 to 2020.[4]

In August 2016 PT PLN said it would put the Kaltim-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.[5]

In the 2017-2026 long-range plan the project is described as 2 x 100 MW rather than 2 x 200 MW scheduled for 2021/2022.[6] Elsewhere in the plan it is described as 1 x 200 MW.[7] The project does not appear in the 2018-2027 long-range plan. In the 2019-2028 long-range plan the project is described as 2 x 100 MW and is scheduled for 2025/2026.[8]

A June 2021 report states that in the RUPTL for 2021-2030, the Kaltim-3 power station will not be built as a coal-fired power station, but will instead run on a different type of non-renewable energy.[9]
