PT Adaro Energy Tbk operates the largest single-site coal mine in the southern hemisphere (Tabalong), and is a major supplier to the global seaborne thermal coal market. Adaro’s coal is widely used throughout Europe, Asia and the Americas.

Adaro’s vision is to be the largest and most efficient integrated coal mining and energy company in south east Asia. The company and its subsidiaries deal in coal mining and trade, coal infrastructure and logistics, and mining contractor service. Each operating subsidiary is positioned as an independent and integrated profit centre.

Indonesia: Adaro operates under a Coal Cooperation Agreement with the Indonesian government. It is allowed to mine coal within its agreement area in the Tanjung district of South Kalimantan Province – around 36,000 hectares located 15 kilometres east of the provincial town of Tanjung. Additionally, in October 2016, Adaro became the sole owner of the IndoMet Coal project after buying BHP’s 75% stake. IndoMet comprises seven Coal Contracts of Work located in Central and Eastern Kalimantan.
