Background

In January 2015, the Jakarta Post reported that Hong Kong-based coal mining company Shenhua China Energy had signed a memorandum of understanding with the government of Lampung province to build two 350 MW mine-mouth coal plants in Mesuji, Lampung. The MoU also included a commitment to establish other power plants with a total capacity of 6 x 350 MW.[1] In November 2015 the Lampung Provincial government confirmed that it would build a 700-MW plant with financing from Chinese investors.[2] Assembly Member Imer Darius confirmed the Shenhua plan in an April 2016 interview.[3]

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