PLN to directly appoint developers for mine-mouth power plants

State-owned electricity firm Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PLN) has stated it will not open tenders for mine-mouth coal-fired power plants (PLTU) as it plans to directly appoint the most prepared developers for such projects.

The direct-appointment scheme will be included in PLN's latest revision to its electricity procurement business plan (RUPTL) for 2017-2026, which is expected to be completed next week.

PLN president director Sofyan Basir said Sumatra and Kalimantan had a huge amount of potential in coal-fired electricity.

“The total potential of electricity at mine-mouths in Sumatra and Kalimantan is more than 5,000 megawatts [MW] and it can be managed through a process of direct appointment or assignment,” Sofyan said in Jakarta on Wednesday as reported by

“We hope we can finish it [the RUPTL revision] next week.”
