PLN rebids Bali power plant

PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PLN) will rebid the development of Bali Timur coal-fired power plants (2x100 MW) due to lack of interest. 
PLN director Bambang Praptono told reporters yesterday that the project attracted only two bidders, fell short of minimum requirement of three bidders. 
PLN invited bids for Bali Timur, an IPP, in March. Construction of the power plant will cost around US$200 million. PLN initially expected the power plant will commence in 2013. But with the rebid, commercial operation will be delayed significantly. PLN plans to rebid the project this month.
PLN also plans to rebid coal-fired power plant projects in Papua and Maluku under the 10,000 MW program. Papua will have 2x7 MW capacity, while Maluku with 2x15 MW. These projects are part of 35 power plants planned under the 10,000 MW program.
