Palu (ANTARA News) - A new unit of the hydro power plant (PLTA) of Sulewana Poso in Central Sulawesi is expected to come on line in 2018.

"Construction of the power plant with a capacity of 4 x 30 megawatts (MW) is expected to be completed in two years," Mustakim, the manager of the contractor PT Poso Energy, said here on Monday.

The new unit would be built by phases with the first phase to have a capacity of 2 x 30 MW. Construction of the first phase would include a dam upstream.

The project, which is estimated to cost Rp2 trillion is not far from PLTA Posos older unit which has been operational since 2013 of the plant.

Mustakim said the dam would control water supply in that area in addition to feeding the power plant including the old unit.

The old unit built at a cost of Rp3.5 trillion has a capacity of 3 x 65 MW.
