Indonesia's PLN eyes tender for 4.6GW of coal-fired projects in 2017

It aims to ink the first batch of PPAs within June.

Indonesian state-owned power utility PT PLN plans to launch tenders for twelve mine-mouth coal-fired power projects in Sumatra and Kalimantan in 2017. The company aims to sign the first power purchase agreements (PPAs) in June 2017 and to have all them settled by the end of the year, according to Enerdata.

"The projects would have a cumulated capacity of 4,650 MW and would require a total investment of US$7.2bn. Expected to be commissioned over the 2020-2024 period, they would help PLN ensure electricity supply in Sumatra and Kalimantan, where electricity reserve margins (difference between installed capacity and peak demand) are only 7-8%," Enerdata said.
