Cirebon Electric Power (CEP), partly owned by Japanese and South Korean conglomerates, plans to start the construction of its second power plant, which will provide an additional power supply of 1,000 megawatts (MW) from its power plant complex in Cirebon, West Java, next year.

CEP director Heru Dewanto said in Jakarta on Tuesday that the new coal-fired power plant would be an expansion of the company’s first power plant, which has already provided electricity supply of up to 660 MW since mid 2013 to the Bali and Java power grid.

Heru told reporters on Tuesday that the new power plant was expected to start supplying electricity by 2018, with construction estimated to take four years. Therefore, we plan to start construction next year,” he said.
