Second OLC line and Barge Loading Facilitiy Extention have been built to support plans to increase the production capacity in the future.

  • Prima : high quality coal with high calorie content, very low ash, medium sulphur, and low moisture
  • Pinang : has lower energy compared to Prima but with higher moisture content
  • Melawan : sub-bituminous coal with low sulphur and ash, and high moisture content
