State owned electricity company PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PLN) says that it aims to speed up the construction of power plants in a number of locations, especially in eastern parts of Indonesia, in a bid to increase the country's electricity supply.
PLN construction and renewable energy director Nasri Sebayang said the firm was setting up plants in East Kalimantan, Riau, Papua and Sulawesi.
"They are locations with limited power supply," Nasri said in Jakarta on Wednesday as quoted by Antara news agency.
The projects that were currently running included a 82 Megawatt (MW) gas power plant (PLTG) Senipah in East Kalimantan, a 220 MW steam-fueled power plant (PLTU) Tenayan in Riau and a 10 MW PLTU Holtekamp in Papua.
In addition, the firm's operational director for eastern Indonesia division Vickner Sinaga said that the projects had increased power supply in eastern Indonesia by 10 percent.
Vickner said that the operation of the new plants would secure electricity in eastern Indonesia so that there would be no more blackouts. (nfo)
