Tarahan power station
|This article is part of the CoalSwarm coverage of Indonesia and coal|
The Tarahan power station is a 200-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power station in Southern Sumatra, Indonesia. A further 300 MW has been proposed.
The project is located in Katibung, Lampung Selatan, Sumatra, Indonesia.
In June 2019 it was announced that PT PLN Persero would build a 300-MW expansion at the Tarahan power station. In November 2019 Lampung Governor Arinal Djunaidi stated that construction of the expansion was part of a plan to reach 100% electrification for Lampung.
In February 2020 United States Department of Justice (U.S. DOJ) announced that allegations of bribery in the awarding of the Rp 1.6 trillion construction contract for the Tarahan power station had been made by executives at French company Alstom and Japanese company Marubeni. The U.S. DOJ said the allegations invovled a member of the Indonesian Parliament and a president director of the State Electricity Company. The U.S. DOJ is investigating the contract under the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act because Alstom has a subsidiary in Connecticut.
