In November 2014, AKR Corporation announced plans to build a two-unit, 600-MW coal-fired power plant in the Java Integrated Industrial Port Estate (JIIPE) in Gresik, Indonesia. The plant would use German components, and would cost $1.5 billion.[1]

The company was reviewing funding sources and considering the possibility of building the plant as a joint venture. Land acquisition was also being negotiated. The company hoped to move forward with the project with an investor in place in early 2015.[2]

An April 2016 presentation to analysts showed the plant at 660 MW.[3]

As of December 2018 there has been no additional news about this project and it appears to have been cancelled.
