Background on Plant

This project is mentioned on Table 13 of the 2015-2014 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 did not show any companies interested in the project.[2]

In the 2017-2026 long-range plan the project is scheduled for 2021/2022.[3] The project does not appear in the 2018-2027 long-range plan. In the 2019-2028 long-range plan the project is scheduled for 2020/2021.[4]

The Kaltim-4 power station began supplying electricity to the grid in August 2020.[5] When the power station came online, it was not operating at full capacity, because the East Kalimantan electricity grid already had a surplus supply of power.[6]
