The Tanjung Jati Power Plant in Indonesia operated by Korea Midland Power (KOMIPO) has won “Gold PROPER,” the highest grade in an environmental management assessment, from the Ministry of Environment and Forestry of Indonesia.

PROPER is an environmental management assessment system which all Indonesian companies are subject to. In 2019, 2,012 companies were evaluated by the Ministry of Environment and Forestry. They were classified into 26 Gold, 174 Green, 1,507 Blue, 303 Red, and two Black companies. PROPER uses indicators such as innovation, environmental management systems, energy efficiency, air emissions reduction, wastewater reduction and management, waste reduction and recycling and ecosystems of surrounding areas and community development.

Of all 36 coal-fired power plants, only two including Tanjung Jati, received “Gold PROPER,” once again proving KOMIPO's strong ability to operate eco-friendly power plants in Indonesia where environmental issues are emerging.

KOMIPO won the operation and maintenance (O&M) contract for the Tanjung Jati Power Plant in 2010. The power plant has an annual capacity of 1,320 MW (660 MW×2). KOMIPO delivers an excellent performance every year based on its rich experience in operating and maintaining power plants in Korea.

In 2017, the power plant was selected as the best power plant in six categories, including the highest operation rate over the past five years and the lowest failure rate, among all power plants under the Indonesian Electric Power Corp.. The power plant also nabbed prizes by recording the highest operation rate over the past five years in 2018 and the highest operation rate over the past five years and the highest operational efficiency in 2019.
