Background on Plant

Punagaya power station is a two-unit, 250-MW coal-fired power plant built by the Bosowa Corporation in South Sulawesi Province. The plant cost $250 million, and was completed in 2011.[2][3][4]


In 2012, Bosowa announced plans to build a second phase at Punagaya.[5] After initially planning to build a single additional 300-MW unit, Bosowa in March 2015 broke ground on a project to build two additional 125-MW units at Punagaya, at a cost of $300 million. Financing was provided by domestic and Chinese banks.[6] The plant is scheduled to go online in 2017. Construction is being managed by PT Sumberenergi Sakti Prima (SSP).[4]

PT PLN's 2015-2024 long range supply plan includes "Jeneponto 2" (2 x 125 MW in 2018/2019) and "Punagaya (FTP2) (2 x 100 MW in 2017/2018.) The "Punagaya (FTP2)" appears to be the same as the Takalar power station.[7] In the 2017-2026 long-range plan Units 3 and 4 are scheduled for 2017 and 2018.[8] The long-range plan for 2018-2027 plan lists a completion date of 2018 for both units.[9]

Units 1 and 2 were inaugurated by Indonesian President Joko Widodo in July 2018.[10] The units are now described as having a capacity of 135 MW each.[10]
