TEMPO.CO, Jakarta - State mining company PT Timah announced a plan to build a steam-fueled power plant (PLTU) with a capacity of 2x150 megawatts and an investment of Rp1 trillion (US$73.5 million) in the near future.

The power plant will be built in the company’s coal mining concession area in Gunung Megang District, Muara Enim, South Sumatra.

Currently, the company is still waiting for the permit of the project development to be issued by the Energy and Mineral Resources Ministry. The company will own 51 percent of the power plant ownership, while the rest of the ownership will be held by PT Adhi Karya.

“Electricity produced by the power plant will be distributed to PT Timah industrial zone in Bangka, and the rest will be sold to state electricity company PLN,” the company’s management said in the 2015 annual report.

Currently, the company has its owned power plant fueled by diesel fuel, locally known as Solar, to supply power for its operational activities.
