Background on Plant
Construction of the plant began in 2010 but stopped in 2014 because of disputes over land rights and allegations of corruption. In the 2018-2027 Electricity Supply Business Plan (RUPTL), the Ambon or Waai PLTU is part of the Fast Track Program (FTP). In July 2018 PT PLN Persero announced that construction would resume in 2018, with a target completion date of 2019.
