Construction of $600m power plant in Indonesia resumes

The pandemic has halted the construction process.

After being impeded last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the construction of the 400 MW coal-fired power plant in the Aceh regency in Indonesia has resumed.

Slated to be completed in late 2023, the $600m power plant is expected to commence operations in 2024. It will consume about 1.2m tonnes of coal per year, 90% of which will come from Kalimantan on Indonesian Borneo.

It will act as a base-load facility and mitigate power shortages in the Aceh Jaya, west Aceh, southwest Aceh, and Nagan Raya regions.

The project is being developed by China Datang Overseas Investment, Indoneisian state-owned construction company Pembangunan Perumahan's subsidiary PP Energy, and power services firm Sumberdaya Sewatama.

As Indonesia recovers from the pandemic in the following two years, the construction of the plant is expected to pick up, too.

The power plant is also part of the Indonesian government’s 35GW power generation programme.
