The government of Indonesia has rolled out the acceleration program for the construction of power plants to increase the rate of electrification in Indonesia. Coal fired steam power plant is the most widely constructed to support this program and it's became the largest of total installed capacity in Indonesia. This research aims to obtain alternative of maintenance strategy in accordance with existing conditions in Indonesia. Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) and Technique for Order Preference by Similarity to Ideal Solution (TOPSIS) used by obtaining criteria, sub criteria and alternative options acquired from the judgement and opinion from 10 experts in power plant. Experts are asked to do a pair wise comparison process to determine which criteria according to experts is more important than the other. The result of the pair wise comparison process is then used as input of the AHP process to determining the weight of each criterion which is used to determine the normalized matrix to be used in the process of the TOPSIS method. This research obtains an approach maintenance strategy to be applied for the steam power plant in range of capacity 300 -625 MW in Indonesia.
