The Progress of the First 10.000 MW Power Plant (PLTU) Project

JAKARTA. The implementation of the first 10.000 MW PLTU project is always improving.  Last 2009, the first generator finished was PLTU Labuan (2x300MW. In 2010, it is hoped that some generators will follow with the total amount is almost 1.400 MW which are 3 locations in Java and 5 outside Java.

Those generators are PLTU Rembang Unit 1 (315 MW), PLTU Indramayu Unit 1 (330 MW), PLTU Suralaya (625 MW). Besides, there are also generators outside Java such as PLTU Tanjung Balai Karimun (2x7 MW), PLTU Bangka (30 MW), PLTU Amurang (25 MW), PLTU Kendari (2x10 MW), and PLTU Ende (2x7 MW).

Thereby, in 2010 the implementation of 10.000 MW electricity project has finished generator construction of PLTU for about 2.000 MW. This is a positive solution because this project has fully started from 2007. A year before is needed to finish planning problem, fund negotiation, and the other administration needs.

Even in 2011, the progress of this project will bring happiness because there will be finished generators for about 4.300 MW which spread in 5 locations in Java and 12 locations outside Java. So, we will be finish 25 locations from 37 total locations in Indonesia

Locations for that project are PLTU Pacitan (2x315 MW), PLTU Rembang (1x350 MW), PLTU Lontar (3x315 MW), PLTU Indramayu (3x330), and PLTU Pelabuhan Ratu (1 x 350 MW). And then the total locations outside Java which almost 1.000 MW are PLTU Sumbagut (2x200 MW), PLTU Lampung (1x100 MW), PLTU Bangka Belitung (30 MW), PLTU Kalsel (2x65 MW), PLTU Sulsel (2x50 MW), PLTU Lombok (2x25 MW), PLTU Gorontalo (2x25 MW), PLTU Amurang (1x25 MW), PLTU NTT (2x6,5 MW), PLTU Bima (2x10 MW), PLTU Jayapura (2x10 MW), and PLTU Maluku Utara (2x7 MW).

By the finishing of generators in Java and especially outside Java, so by 2011 the total generators which will be finished are 6.300 MW. It could be said that two third of electricity project planning 10.000 MW can be finished for about less than 4, 5 years. The rest which is 3.700 MW will be finished in the next years.

There are still some unfinished projects especially because of the land problem such as land acquisition, overlap with another sector, the moving location because the land condition is not conducive. Besides, it is because of the climate factor which is less support physical construction of the building. Another factor is there are additional project which is newly added in 2009 such as PLTU Riau (2x100 MW) and PLTU Kaltim 2x100 MW which are in tender process. Both of these projects are finished in 2013-2014.

According to the existence program, by 2013 almost all 10.000 MW electricity project could be finished. Huge generators such as PLTU Cilacap (600 MW), PLTU Tanjung Awar-awar (2x350 MW), and PLTU Pelabuhan Ratu (2x350 MW) will finish at least 9.500 MW or 95% of all project. So that electricity producttion can be enjoyed by Indonesian. For PLN, finishing this project will be able to decrease the fuel to generate electricity. It means that subsidize given to PLN could be decreased so that those subsidize could be used for other sectors’ need. (AK)
