ANTARA reported that PT Indonesia Power, one of the subsidiaries of PT PLN (the State-owned Electricity Company), will build a steam power plant in Bintang Mas village, Kubu Raya district, West Kalimantan province. Head of PT Indonesia Power's construction division Ari said that "We have met the Kubu Raya administration to talk about the construction plan of the Kalbar II steam power plant in Kubu Raya.”

The company hoped the administration and the local people, especially those who live near the construction site, would support the plan.

Mr Ari said that "We have delivered a presentation on the development plan of steam power plant to the secretary of the Kubu Raya administration. We hope we get a full support from the administration and people for our efforts to fulfill the electricity need in West Kalimantan, especially in Kubu Raya and Pontiakan city.”

He hoped that the expected steam power plant could increase the electrification ratio in West Kalimantan, especially in Kubu Raya and Pontianak.

In addition, the West Kalimantan steam power plant is expected to reduce the electricity production cost as it is generated with charcoal.

Mr Ari said that "We are expecting support from the administration and people in order to make the development plan a success, and hope that the plant will start operation by 2023.”
