Indonesia’s PLN to develop 7,000 MW of coal-fired power

Indonesia’s state-owned Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PLN) is seeking an additional 28 million metric tons of coal per year after being mandated by the government for the development of 7,000 MW of coal-fired power.

PLN was also asked to lessen its dependence on diesel-fueled generation to take advantage of cheaper resources such as coal, reported The Jakarta Globe.

The order is part of Indonesia’s second energy fast-track program, which has set a goal of increasing its power generation capacity to 15,000 MW using a mix of coal and renewable energy resources

Currently, some 60 percent of Indonesia’s electric power is generated from coal-fueled energy.

PLN coal director Helmi Najamuddin said the first coal delivery under the program is expected in 2018.
