Background on Plant

PLN is currently building a two-unit coal-fired power plant with a total planned capacity of 200 MW in Lampung Province.[1][2] The plant was originally scheduled to go online in 2013, then in December 2014, but as of March 2015 the plant is apparently still not fully online.[3]

President Joko Widodo visited the plant site in November 2014, and spoke of the need to end power shortages in Sumatra.[4]

In February 2015, Henry Angga Kusuma was convicted of bribery in the land acquisition process for the Sebalang plant.[5]

In August 2015, social media posts by plant commissioning workers suggested that Unit 2 had been successfully put into operation.[6]

In February 2019 the government's long-range plan called for the construction of an additional 300-MW unit by 2026.[7]
