Coal producer PT Adaro Indonesia is planning to soon boost its production capacity to 80 million tons annually, almost double the 42.19 millions tons it produced throughout 2010.

The planned boost in production is intended to support the Indonesian government's policy placing the private company as among “national vital objects” in regard to energy production, Adaro general manager Priyadi said Friday.

“Our production is vital. [If we] halt our supply for just one week, Java and Bali will suffer from blackouts,” Priyadi said in Tabalong, South Kalimantan, as quoted by

Priyadi said more than 25 percent of the coal Adaro produced was aimed at the domestic market, most of which would be to support power plants in Java and Bali.

The three coal mines Adaro operates in South Kalimantan and Central Kalimantan contain combined total coal reserves of 5.7 billions tons, he said.
