INDUSTRY.co.idJepara - 4x1.000 MW Java Steam Power Plant (PLTU) in Jepara Regency, Central Java, has an investment value of 4.2 billion US dollars.

"PLTU Java 4 was built by a consortium of PT Bhumi Jati Power (BJP), the financing of this project is funded through loans from Japan Bank for International Cooperation and syndication of seven commercial banks," said Head of PT PLN Corporate Communications Unit I Made Suprateka yesterday.
