Starting increasing of the world coal consumption in early 2017 after the last 5 years of deterioration is inseparable from the rapid increase in world energy demand where coal is the second largest energy supplier after oil with 26% contribution. This role is expected to increase to 29% by 2030. While its contribution as a power plant is estimated to also increase to 46% by 2030. The increasing role of coal as a supplier of energy in the future will make this industry a huge attraction for investors included in Indonesia.
Lahat regency, South Sumatra, has a coal reserve of 2.71 billion tons while Muara Enim has 6.25 billion tons of coal reserves and about 28.52% of Indonesia’s coal reserves of LRC-low rank coal are located in South Sumatra. By seeing the amount of the coal reserves above, the potential of provinces and state revenues from the coal mining sector is very large, assuming from the above inferred reserves, mineable is 70% then Government of Indonesia royalty income opportunity revenue from the mining sector are by utilizing the lematang river as the channel coal transportation as below follows :
This yet including with the advancement of the other supporting industry sectors which is could helps to utilized the potential of new jobs creation in the south of sumatera province for approximately 218,000 opportunities.
Currently in Lahat regency there are 12 private IUPs with a production of about 2,7 million tons per year carrying its coal with a dump truck, while the production of two IUPs owned by PT Bukit Asam (PTBA) and or state own company using trains and in Lahat there are still 38 coal IUPs that have not been produced in due to limited facilities or access to the coal transportation of loading coal to the collecting port at the mouth of the river Musi.
To anticipate the density of vehicles on the highway from Lahat to Palembang, the district government plans to build a special road.The construction of the special road is done by PT Servo Lintas Raya (PT SLR) but this special road encounters several obstacles, namely the need for 70 new bridges units due to the number of rivers crossed by this special road, another alternative is to develop the construction of railway 2 lines for the coal transportation but again this also faces obstacles for the land acquisition process which is owned by the citizens, and most of the people want all of their land to be sized and or cleared though not all the land affected by the land acquisition project and in addition to the high price of the land acquisition is the geotechnical issue of the some area whereas the road and rail track were sit and positioned in the swampy area,so in regards of the bearing capacity of the road and rail track there are standard minimum of weight passage which is indirectly impact to the maximum of tonnages and production throughput capacity over passing the road and rail track infrastructures.
Example for the Servo road,the road designed with capacity of 12 mtpa but the actual capacity as only could achieved 6 to 7 mtpa and or approximately maximum 500,000 to 600,000 tones/month.
