Background on Plant

The Perawang pulp & paper mill, one of the world's largest, is owned by PT Indah Kiat Pulp & Paper, a subsidiary of Asia Pulp and Paper (APP), which in turn is a subsidiary of the Sinar Mas Group. The Perawang mill is powered by a coal plant; prior to the expansion, four units (Units 4, 6, 7, and 8) of the coal plant, brought online in 2000-09, were still operating, totaling 305 MW.[2][3]
