Background on Plant

In February 2011, state-owned coal mining producer Bukit Asam (PTBA) announced that it was considering investing US$3.5 billion to build four plants, two in South Sumatra with an unnamed Chinese firm, one in Riau with the Indian company Lanko and Astra International subsidiary Pamapersada Nusantara, and one on Madura Island in East Java.[1] The Madura plant would be a two-unit, 400-MW coal-fired plant; unlike PTBA's other proposals, this plant would not be a mine-to-mouth plant, since PTBA does not have coal mining operations on Madura Island. The project cost was projected at $500 million.[2]

The project appeared to be abandoned. However, it was included in the 2016-2025 long-range plan for completion in 2022. The plant is intended to be fueled with gas, but it will use coal if gas is not available.[3] In the 2017-2026 plan the plant is scheduled for completion in 2021.[4] The 2018-2027 plan lists it as a 450 MW plant scheduled for completion in 2023.[5] In the 2019-2028 long-range plan the project is switched to gas.[6]
