Lombok is one area that has prospects of tourism development in the future. However, the optimization of Lombok as a tourist area is still hampered by a number of obstacles such as inadequate electricity infrastructure due to deficit condition. To meet the electricity demand in Lombok, PT. PLN built a steam power plant located in Jeranjang Village, Kebon Ayu. However, this power plant is not operated maximally due to many obstacles in the development process. Therefore, evaluation of the construction of the power plant needs to be performed. This evaluation is to understand the main factors causing delays in building the steam power plant. The methods used in this research are SWOT and AHP methods. The SWOT method is used to derive alternative strategies validated by experts. AHP method is used to get the main factor causing the delay of PLTU development. The results show that the design changes with the weight of 43.8% becoming the main factor in the completion of the project. Other influential factors are cost weighing of about 26.3%, labor force weighing of approximately 15.7%, and tools and materials weighing of 14.1%. The design change causes the cost of development projects becoming larger, so the contractor needs to make additional manpower to fit the needs of the workforce during project implementation. This has an impact on the addition of required equipment and materials. Therefore, the things that can be conducted to prevent delays are: (i) not to change the design in a large capacity of the project, and (ii) add additional hours and work to the workers.
