Background on Plant

Sulbagut-3 power station consists of two 50 MW units, scheduled for 2021.[1] In October 2017 it was named one of eleven priority investment projects by the Governor of North Sulawesi Olly Dondokambey.[2] The two units are postponed to 2023 and 2024 in the 2018-2027 PT PLN long-range plan.[3] The two units are postponed to 2024 and 2025 in the 2019-2028 long-range plan.[4]

In March 2020 the project's sponsor announced that it might be delayed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.[5]

In June 2021, the Indonesian government announced that it would no longer allow construction of coal-fired power stations after 2025 and updated its plans for many coal-fired projects under development. The Sulbagut-3 power station is now planned to be powered by a mixture of energy sources, including gas and renewable energy, and excluding coal, with a target operation date of 2027/2028.[6]
