$2.7bn coal-fired plant to be built in Indonesia

YTL Power International is to build its second power plant in Indonesia, after announcing a plan to develop the 1320 MW Tanjung Jati A coal-fired power plant in Cirebon, West Java.
The Indonesian government is encouraging such projects in order to improve its energy security and stop power outages. Earlier in 2015, it announced its plan to have 35,000 MW of installed power generation capacity in the next five years to address power crises.

YTL Power will supply power from the proposed $2.7bn plant to Indonesian Government-owned utility PT PLN (Persero). As per the 30-year power purchase agreement (PPA), YTL Power International's 80 per cent-owned subsidiary PT Tanjung Jati Power will sell energy and capacity generated from the facility to Persero upon completion.

Comprising two units of 660 MW capacity each, the power plant will feature new coal-fired technology.
