A. PLTU Mulut Tambang Sumsel 8
South Sumatra Mine-Mouth Coal-Fired Power Plant 8 (PLTU Sumsel 8) is a coal- red power plant with ‘mine-mouth’ scheme where the power plant is located adjacent to the coal mine, thus reducing logistic costs. This PLTU will have 1,200 MW capacity and will be connected with HVDC transmission line.
The growth of population and industry on Java Island especially the west part of Java has increased the needs for electric power that cannot be fulfilled by power plants in Java Island. Seeing the huge potentials for coal and the construction of coal- red power plants on Sumatra Island, the Government of Indonesia has prepared a plan to develop power plants and transmissions to create sustainable electricity supply for both Sumatera and Java islands.
