Background on Project

In November 2014, Adaro Indonesia and Shenhua Group signed an agreement to build a two-unit, 600-MW mine-mouth coal-fired power plant in East Kalimantan Province.[1][2] The project's developers plan to bring the plant online in 2019.[3] According to a September 2015 presentation by Adaro Energy, the project will use low heat value coal. Pre-feasibility and feasibility studies will begin soon on the power project and the related coal mine. The project will use non-recourse project debt financing.[4] As of November 2016, it is reported that the project continues in the feasibility study stage.[5]

As of December 2018 there had been no further news about this project and it appears to have been shelved.
