PJB Project was the name of a proposed 600-megawatt (MW) coal-fired station in West Java, Indonesia that was reported in the Indonesian business media in 2004 and 2005. The project continues to be reported as a pending project by Platts, Enepedia, and CARMA; however, no news reports on the project have appeared since 2005, suggesting that it was either abandoned or continued under a different name.

Background on Plant

In October 2004 the Vice-President of China Huadian Corporation (CHD) met with a senior official from the Chinese Embassy in Indonesia seeking support for its plans for greater involvement in the Indonesia market.[1] The following year CHD won a $US400 million contract for the construction of 2×300MW coal fired power plant project in West Java, Indonesia.[2] The project was to supply power to PT Pembangkitan Jawa-Bali (PT PJB), a government-owned utility commonly referred to as PT PJB. The consortium selected to build the project was PT. Indika Inti Energy[1], a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Indika Group.[3]
