Background on Plant
The plant is owned and operated by PT PLN Persero.
In August 2018 it was determined that broken air filters at the plant were causing an increase in air pollution near the plant. A spokesman for the plant attributed the problem to the plant's age, 22 years, and the fact that much of its equipment was only designed to last for 25 years. Pollution has been an ongoing problem for the area around the power station. Residents lodged a formal complaint about pollution in March of 2020.
