Indonesia’s USD17.8 hydropower plant to be operation in 2026

Kayan Hydro Energy (KHE) expects its first 900 MW hydropower plant in Indonesia to be operational in 2026.

The Kayan Cascade hydropower plant will be located on Borneo island and will require a total investment of around USD17.8 billion. Additionally, KHE has partnered with Japan-based Sumitomo Corporation to jointly develop the Kayan Cascade project. Sumitomo will provide investment for the hydropower project as well as transfer of technology. Early development work is underway, with construction of a dam diversion channel scheduled to commence in 2023. Renewable energy generated from the facility will be supplied to a green industrial park being developed in North Kalimantan province as well as other projects on Borneo island.
