In order to support a population of over 230 million people (2010), reliable electricity generation is needed for Indonesia’s economic growth. The Indonesian Government through the National Electricity Company (PLN) had introduced the participation of the private sector, as independent power producers (IPP) since the 1990s to fulfill Indonesia’s growing electricity demand.
With experience learned from past developments, the electricity landscape in Indonesia is entering a new era of competitiveness, transparency and reliability. Competitiveness is required to increase affordability for Indonesian people; transparency for security to the private sector in developing IPPs; and reliability to ensure a stable supply of electricity to consumers.
DH Energy with reputed international partners are developing mine-mouth power plants as IPP projects in Pendopo, South Sumatra. The off-taker of electricity will be PLN through a competitive tender process. The coal requirements for all mine-mouth power generation projects will be supplied by Pendopo Energi Batubara for a guaranteed life cycle of the plant.
