The Pongkeru hydro plant is to have a capacity of 50 MW and be located in Pongkeru, South Sulawesi. The Cirebon coal-fired plant is to have a capacity of 660 MW and be located in Cirebon, West Java.
Korea IT Times says “The two projects will be carried out as part of the Indonesia government’s plan to expand the nation’s power infrastructure by 35 gigawatts in five years.”
