PT Bintan Power Plant

Current Project


This project is planned in the form of a coal-fired power plant with an installed capacity with total planning 4 x 330 MW,  to steadily increase its capacity along with rising demand on Bintan Island. The immediate power requirement at the moment is no less than 2,000 MW. There is also a smelting plant underway which requires 900 MW for phase one alone. Coal fuel can be easily supplied from South Sumatra and Kalimantan.


The first phase of the project will be targeted for East Bintan Maritime Industrial Estate, Galang Batang, Gunung Kijang Village, Gunung Kijang Sub-district, Bintan Regency, Riau Islands, covering an area of approximately 30 hectares for electrical requirements of Galang Batang, Kijang and Tanjung Pinang. The second phase will be located in Teluk Bintan, and will supply Bintan resorts and industries, Pertamina, PLN Tanjung Uban, and PLN Tanjung Pinang, with a transmission capacity of 150 KV.


To meet the large developmental programme launched for Bintan island, creation of modern infrastructure facilities began in 1991 itself with an investment of US $170 million. Since the island was approachable only by ferrying, priority was given to develop the Ferry terminal at Bandar Bentan Telani. There are now three Ferry Terminals (Sea Ports) and two Cargo Sea Ports with capacity of 10,000 to 12000 gross weight ton. Bintan now has an airport known as Raja Haji Fisabilillah Airport.

Garuda Indonesia has plans to build a new airport hub on the island as a stop gap measure for Jakarta, and to compete with Lion Air’s new hub at Hang Nadim Airport on neighboring Batam. One issue however is the region is saturated with airport capacity while land is scarce, as Singapore Changi Airport and Johor Bahru Senai Airport are nearby. Road within the island was also started and the first stretch of the 12.5 kilometres (7.8 mi), the east west arterial road was completed (out of the 35 kilometres (22 mi) stretch planned in the ultimate stage). Branch roads were also built to land parcels allotted for resort development. Within each land area allocated, the resort agencies constructed their own internal road network. Drinking water facilities were also created by constructing a reservoir of 5 million litres and a service reservoir of 1.5 million litres for supply to a water treatment plant. From this plant, potable water supply system has been created to all the resort areas. Electricity supply is also ensured through a Power generating plant of 18 MW plant with capacity to upgrade to 24 MW.

Within each resort area water and power supply connections to the resorts are done by the resort agencies. The potable water that is supplied meets the WHO standards. Sewage Treatment is done in all the resorts through modular Sewage treatment plants. The recycled effluent is put to use for irrigation. Another important civic amenity attended is the disposal of solid waste.The solid waste is collected from the resorts. It is systematically disposed in a centralized sanitary landfill site. There are 15 banks, 7 hotels and 6 golf courses. Telecommunication Service facility available is the International NetWork.


    • EPC contract payment
    • Construction costs, operator mobilization costs and initial investment
    • Supervision cost for construction and management
    • Initial spare parts procurement
    • Insurance, contingencies, Dept. Service Reserve (DSR), insurance during construction and other financing, legal consultation fees and assorted other costs.


As of late, there have been many commercial developments in Bintan by foreign investors mainly from Singapore, China, Malaysia, Hong Kong and Taiwan. The Chinese is currently developing a new CBD while industrial parks are by both being developed mainly by Singaporeans and the Chinese.

An additional of 200 megawatts daily demand are required just to keep Bintan running at their current capacity hence a daily 3-5 hours black out is a common and on going issue. The solution to this is naturally by building a new Power Plant for such demand. Besides the said CBD, a new Smelting Plant is scheduled for development by the Chinese, which requires 900 megawatts just to operate it. Land has been allocated and bought by the related parties already.

Bintan Power Plant has the following Electricity Permits (G.T.D)
• I.U.K.U (Izin Usaha Ketenagalistrikan Untuk Kepentingan Umum)
• I.U.K.S (Izin Usaha Ketenagalistrikan Untuk Kepentingan Sendiri)
• Generate
• Transmit
• Distribute


In addition to building a power plant at Galang Batang, PT Bintan Power Plant also intends to construct:

150 KV transmission network, along 120 km:

  • Power block to Tanjung Uban
  • Power block to Trikora
  • Power block to Ekang Anculai (electricity substation for Lagoi Resort Bintan)
  • Power block to Tanjung Uban (electricity substation for Lobam industries)
  • Power block to Tanjung Uban (electricity substation for Pertamina)

20 KV Distribution network, along 15 km:

  • Power block to Kijang
  • Power block to Sun Resort Batulicin
  • Power block to companies in East Bintan Maritime Industrial Estate


To supply electrical energy generated by PT Bintan Power Plant, 10 substations will be built, form 150 KV / 20 KV systems, covering

  • Kijang Substation
  • Batulicin Substation
  • Kawal/Trikora Substation
  • CBD Bintan Substation
  • Lagoi Substation
  • Lobam Substation
  • Pertamina Substation
  • Tanjung Uban Substation
