Background on Plant

This project is mentioned on Table 13 of the 2015-2024 PT PLN long range supply plan, scheduled for 2018 and 2019.[1] The project comprises two units of 100 MW each. It is located in East Kalimantan near the Sangatta mines operated by Kaltim Prima Coal.[2]

In the 2017-2026 long-range plan, the project is rescheduled to 2026 and is described as an independent power project (IPP).[3] In the 2019-2028 long-range plan the project is rescheduled 2020/2021.[4]

Unit 1 was commissioned in October 2019, setting a record for fastest construction of a power plant on Kalimantan.[5] Unit 2 began commercial operations in January 2020.[6]

Environmental impact

People who live near the plant have complained that their catch of fish and harvesting of seaweed from Kadere Bay have diminished since the plant began operating. As of November 2020 the plant had not been used to electrify Lok Tunggul, a neighborhood adjacent to the plant.[7]
