Background on Plant

This project is mentioned on Table 13 of the 2015-2024 PT PLN long range supply plan, scheduled for 2023 and 2024. It comprises two units of 200 MW each.[1] In the 2016-2025 long range plan, it is moved forward from 2024 to 2023.[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 2017-2026 long-range plan the project is described as 2 x 100 MW rather than 2 x 200 MW and is scheduled for 2021/2022.[4] Elsewhere in the plan it is described as 1 x 200 MW.[5]

In November 2017, PT Indonesia Power, a subsidiary of state-owned electricity company PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PLN), announced that it had agreed to team up with energy company PT Adaro Energy Tbk to develop a mine-mouth power plant in East Kalimantan, called PLTU Kaltim 5. The power plant will have installed capacity of 2×100 MW. The project will be developed by a joint venture company in which Indonesia Power holds 51% stakes and Adaro Energy 49%.[6] In April 2019 Adaro announced that it had withdrawn in 2018 because it did not consider the project to be feasible.[7]

In February 2018 PT Perusahaan announced that it would be acquiring a number of coal mining sites to power proposed coal-fired plants in Kalimantan, among them Kaltim-5.[8]

In February 2019 the RUPTL for 2019-2028 delayed the project's two units to 2027 and 2028.[9] In April 2019 it was disclosed that Adaro had withdrawn from the project in 2018, and PT PLN stated that it plans to review the RUPTL for 2019-2028 to determine whether to proceed or cancel the project.[10]

As of November 2020 there had been no progress on the project in two years and it appears to be shelved.
