Bakrie Power has unveiled plans to build a $340m power plant in East Kalimantan, Indonesia.

The facility will be capable of generating 200MW of energy and will serve the province’s growing demand for electricity.

Bakrie Power Ali Herman president director said the development would be located near the Sangatta coal mines in East Kutai district, reports Jakarta Globe.

"The real demand for electricity for East Kalimantan province is currently 500MW and by 2013 it will increase to 600MW and by 2020 to 1,100MW," Herman said.

The plant will receive low rank coal from Sangatta mines owned by Kaltim Prima Coal (KPC), a subsidiary of the world’s largest thermal coal exporter, Bumi Resources, which is also a Bakrie company.

Development plans have now been submitted to the local authorities for approval. The facility will need around 2,000 workers during its 36month construction time and Bakrie Power expects it to take four years to complete.
