The two 315 MW units went into commercial operation in 2011.[1][2]

As of October 2022, the power station was the target of a blended finance spin-off scheme designed by the Ministry of Finance. The goal of the scheme was accelerated retirement of the power station.[3]

In April 2023, the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Resources included Pacitan power station on a list of projects that were potential targets for early retirement.[4]

As of November 2023, the power station co-fired with saw dust.[5]


PLN received a US$293 million loan from the Export-Import Bank of China to finance the Pacitan plant.[6]

Environmental Impact

Since the plan began operations in 2013, local residents have complained about coal dust and air contamination, a falling catch of fish for fishermen, coal dust killing turtles, and insufficient compensation from the plant's owners for their loss of livelihood.[7]
