Korea Midland Power Co. (KOMIPO) signed a memorandum of understanding with the Indonesian government to build a hydro and a coal plant in Indonesia, according to Korea IT Times.

The Pongkeru hydro plant is to have a capacity of 50 MW and be located in Pongkeru, South Sulawesi. The Cirebon coal-fired plant is to have a capacity of 660 MW and be located in Cirebon, West Java.

Korea IT Times says “The two projects will be carried out as part of the Indonesia government’s plan to expand the nation’s power infrastructure by 35 gigawatts in five years.”

KOMIPO is a subsidiary of Korea Electric Power Corp.

In February 2016, HydroWorld.com reported that the government of Indonesia was trying to complete the tender process for eight dams by June.

In 2014, HydroWorld.com reported that KOMIPO and other parties signed an MOU for the development of hydropower projects in Pakistan (640-MW Azad Pattan) and Indonesia (280-MW Muarra Juloi).
