PT Adaro Energy Tbk. is an Indonesian energy group that focuses on coal mining through subsidiaries.[1] The principal location is at Tabalong district in South Kalimantan, where the subsidiary PT Adaro Indonesia operates the largest single-site coal mine in the southern hemisphere (roughly 110,000 tons of coal per day).[2] Adaro Energy operates under a first-generation CCA (coal co-operation agreement) with the Indonesian Government valid until 2022.

Adaro has been clearing land in Central Java for a 2,000MW coal plant, after a delay for more than four years due to land acquisition issues.[3] The construction of Indonesia's largest coal plant, into which Adaro invested $4.2 billion, began in June 2016.[4]

Adaro's strategy focuses on power generation as of the company's "three pillars" besides coal exports and logistics.[2]


In 1976 the Indonesian Mines Department divided East and South Kalimantan into eight coal blocks and invited tenders for these blocks. Spanish state-owned enterprise Enadimsa (empresa nacional adaro investigaciones mineras s.a.) bid for Block 8 in the Tanjung district of South Kalimantan. Adaro Indonesia’s Coal Cooperation Agreement (CCA) was signed on Nov. 2, 1982. In 1989 a consortium of Australian and Indonesian companies purchased 80% of Adaro Indonesia from Enadimsa.

In 2008, Adaro Energy raised $1.3 billion in the country's largest ever initial public offering.[5]
