Cirebon 2 (West Java)

Cirebon power station is a 660-megawatt (MW) coal-fired power plant in West Java Province, Indonesia. It is also the site of the proposed 924-MW Cirebon Unit 2 (also known as Jawa-1) and the proposed 1,000-MW Cirebon Unit 3.

Protests from the community in relation to its land acquisition status delayed initial operation of the plant.

In December 2016 a legal challenge to the project was filed by The People for Environmental Protection (RAPEL), with legal representation by the Advocacy Team for Climate Justice. At the heart of the legal challenge was RAPEL’s claim that local planning law only permitted power plant development in the district of Astanajapura, and that the Cirebon 2 expansion also extended into Mundu district, which was zoned for local livelihoods. On April 19, 2017, the regional court in Bandung ruled the environmental permit for the plant was issued illegally.
