Background on Plant

The 2 x 100 MW Lampung Sebalang power station was built by PLN 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 was 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]

Unit 2 of the Lampung Sebalang power station came online in July 2015.[6]

In February 2019 the government's long-range plan called for the construction of an additional 300-MW unit by 2026.[7] In October 2021 this proposed expansion was shelved under the government's long-range plan for 2021-2030.[8]


In August 2018, a major fire severely damaged both operating units at the Lampung Sebalang power station, forcing both units to go offline. As a result of the accident, PLN was forced to purchase power from other generating facilities to cover the electricity production gap.[9] Repairs at the power station were not completed until late September 2018.[10]
