Environmental and Social Impact Assessment on the Coal Fired Power Plant (PLTU) Bintan 3 x 33 MW in Tanjung Pinang.

The temporary interruption and distribution of electrical energy in rotation is the impact of the limited electrical energy that can be supplied by PLN. This happens because the rate of addition of new energy sources and the procurement of power plants in the region are not comparable to the increase in electricity consumption. In an effort to improve services to electricity needs in Bintan Regency, the planned construction and operation of a coal-fired Steam Power Plant (PLTU) with a capacity of 3 x 30 MW.
The planned activities will be carried out in Gunung Kijang Village, Gunung Kijang District, Bintan Regency with a land area of ??around 20 hectares. The activity was initiated by STX Energy Co., Ltd. with its partner PT. Bintan Power Plant. Utilization of natural resources including water, land and coal, for the planned construction of the 3 x 30 MW Bintan PLTU, can cause conflicts of interest both ecologically and economically.
