A Comprehensive Forum on Indonesia Power Generation & Electricity. Krakatau Steel plans coal-fired power plant in Banten. April 19, 2018. IDX-listed steel maker PT Krakatau Steel Tbk through subsidiary PT Krakatau Daya Listrik (KDL) plans to develop a 150 MW PLTU coal-fired power plant in Banten to supply electricity to the Krakatau Industrial Estate Cilegon.
Compared to other fuel sources, coal provides an abundant, relatively low-cost fuel for electricity generation. However, unless managed carefully, coal-fired power plants emit pollutants such as sulphur dioxide (SO 2), nitrous oxide (NO X), particulates, and high levels of greenhouse gases.
In April 2008, AES expanded into the Philippines, completing the $930 million purchase and transfer of assets of the 600 MW (gross) Masinloc Coal-fired Thermal Power Plant, now Masinloc Power Partners Co. Ltd., located in Zambales Province in Luzon.
