Tempo Interactive, Jakarta: The tender for suppliers of low quality coal for the 10,000 megawatt electricity project has netted five out of six companies that put in offers.

One company failed because it did not include a guarantee.

The winners of the low calorie coal supplier tender are: PT Titan Mining Energy, PT Arutmin Indonesia, PT Kasih Industri Indonesia, PT Baramutiara Prima and PT Surya Sakti Darma Kencana.

Tonny Agus Mulyantono, Deputy Director for Primary Energy Generators at the State Electricity Company (PLN), said the company would soon sign the letter of agreement.

He said that the coal needed by 10 power plants was around 21.58 million tons per year and that so far there was still a deficiency of around three million tons.

“The realization will probably January next year,” he said yesterday (18/10).

The coal suppliers will be contracted with PLN for 20 years.

The sales price of the coal is until the coal reaches the power plant location, so transportation costs are borne by the supplier.

PT Arutmin is listed as the company that submitted most documents, a total of 14, for the ten steam-powered electric generator power plants (PLTU) that are being tendered.

PT Padang Bara Sukses Makmur handed one document for PLTU 2 Labuan, Banten, without including fund guarantee.

The price it proposed was Rp325,000 per ton, above the set price of Rp269.780 per ton.
