Background on Project
The plant powers the Delong nickel smelter in Bondoala, Indonesia, which is operated by Virtue Dragon Nickel Industry Co. Ltd. It is adjacent to the Obsidian Stainless Steel processing plant, the site of the Delong Nickel Phase II power station.
In December 2020, about 800 workers protested at the Virtue Dragon Industrial Park, calling for higher salaries and permanent employment for contractors. When management refused to meet with the protestors, the demonstrators began destroying company property. Significant damage was inflicted up on the nickel production facilities, and about 40 pieces of heavy equipment were set on fire and destroyed. The protests "paralyzed" production at the plant.
