Mining Companies Obliged to Build PLTU

PLTU Asam Asam
East Kalimantan Governor Awang Faroek Ishak, in this case the the Kutai Kartanegara (Kukar) regency administration has asked Kukar mining companies to take part in the building of a coal-fired power plant (PLTU).

"I have asked the Kukar regency administration to summon all mining concessionaires and I myself will also attend the meeting.   Kukar is rich in coal deposits, and will not be able to build even one PLTU," Awang Faroek Ishak said in Samarinda on Friday.
He said the PLTU is expected to overcome the power crisis facing East Kalimantan, especially in Mahakam which consists of three regencies/cities, namely Balikapapan, Samarinda, and Kukar. He said in the past Kukar was the only region with a capacity to build a PLTU in Indonesia, while at that time the number of coal mines was not as many as now.
"Therefore there is no reason for the mining concessionaires not to set aside their coal for the building of a PLTU to overcome the power crisis facing the Mahakam system," he said.
"If necessary the PLTU will have a capacity of 2x100 Megawatts, and at the same time with the building of a 2x100 megawatts PLTU in  Muara Jawa, there would be no longer any power problem in East Kalimantan," he said.
The matter had been put forward by Awang in view of the may national events held in East Kalimantan.  Soon to be held will be the Adat Erau Festival.JIM
