INDUSTRY.co.id - Tarakan- PT PLN (Persero) has postponed the construction of a steam power plant in Tarakan City, North Kalimantan, because it has not been included in the priority scale.

General Manager of PT PLN (Persero) of Kaltim-Kaltara Region Riza Novianto Gustam in Samarinda through a written message received in Tarakan, Monday (4/12/2017) stated that the power plant construction was postponed because the peak power load in Tarakan City was only 39.3 megawatts MW).

The need for power of that size, he said can be fulfilled with diesel engines owned today so that the PLTU development plan is postponed. This is also related to the development of steam power plant in Tanjung Selor, Bulungan regency, which is being processed.

Then, the plan to build PLTMG in Tanjung Selor at 15 MW is also the reason for the delay of PLTU development in Tarakan City, he said.

Regarding the discourse of submarine cable transmission connection from Kaltim to Tarakan City, Riza Novianto said, still in feasibility study phase (FS) or feasibility test.

Riza asserted that the network connection from Kaltim to Kaltara has been started so that it is targeted to be fully connected by 2020 along with the completion of PLTG development in Seimenggaris Sub-district, Nunukan Regency.

So, he said, the delay of power plant development in Tarakan City is reasonable with regard to the start of a number of power plant developments in Kaltara area and cable connection from Kaltim region. (Ant)
