ESIA Brief Explanation
PT Indo Raya Tenaga (IRT), a joint-venture company between Indonesia Power and Barito Pacific, Tbk, is developing the Jawa 9 & 10 Coal Fired Steam Power Plant (CFSPP) two (2) x 1,000 MW in Suralaya, Banten Province, Indonesia.
The Project occupies approximately 157 Hectares of land, and is located next to and adjacent to the existing Suralaya CFSPP Units 1-8 in Lebak Gede and Suralaya Disrict, Cilegon City, Banten Province, Indonesia.
In managing the E&S aspects of the Project, IRT has developed the Environment Social and Impact Assessment (ESIA) and the Environmental and Social Management Plan (ESMP) specific to the Project and in compliance with the applicable IFC E&S standards.
The ESIA contains the policy, legal and administrative framework under which the study was carried out and a description of the operations in its geographic, ecological, social and as well as an analysis of the cumulative impacts and feasible alternatives. The ESIA (Volume 1) has identified and assessed all direct/indirect/induced potential environmental, social and community health impacts from the different activities and phases of Project development, prescribing mitigation and monitoring to manage those identified impacts to an acceptable level under the standards or optimize potential positive Project benefits.
Mitigation measures needed to control, avoid, prevent, reduce and repair impacts to acceptable levels are presented in ESMP as Volume 2. The ESMP outlined in this volume presents the environmental management, mitigation, monitoring and institutional measures to be taken in conducting the Company’s operational activities, to reduce adverse environmental and social effects to acceptable levels and enhance positive effects. The ESMP is the comprehensive Project plan for the implementation of mitigation and monitoring measures to control and manage the potential environmental and social impacts that were identified in the ESIA.
The Project is subject to both Indonesian regulations, international conventions that Indonesia is a signatory to and international E&S standards. In addition, IRT has a Company EHS Policy in promoting responsible environmental stewardship and socially responsible development within the Project and Suralaya area, as well as to maximize positive opportunities associated with the Project’s activities and minimize the negative risk and impacts. These activities represent IRT’s continuous improvement in environmental performance in accordance with the principles of ISO 14001:2015.
