PLN targets to complete 20 percent of 35,000 MW program this year

State-owned electricity company PLN is targeting to complete 3,963 megawatts (MW) installed capacity this year to reach 7,000 MW installed capacity or 20 percent of the 35,000 MW electricity program introduced by President Joko “Jokowi” Widodo four years ago.

PLN strategic procurement director Supangkat Iwan Santoso said the additional capacity would come from a number of power plants.

There would be at least three coal-fired power plants (PLTU) ready to start operation this year with the total capacity of 2,350 MW – PLTU Java 7 and PLU Java 8 with the capacity of 1,000 MW each and PLTU Lontar with the capacity of 350 MW, Supangkat added.

“There are also a number of small power plants [that would begin operation] this year. But coal-fired power plants would provide the largest contribution,” Supangkat said as reported by

Previously, Energy and Mineral Resources Ministry electricity director general Andy N Sommeng said as of December 2018, from the 35,000 MW program, 2,899 MW had entered commercial operation. Projects that would generate 18,207 MW were under construction, while projects that would generate 11,467 MW have not started construction, while 1,683 MW are at the procurement level and 954 megawatts are at the planning level.

“It means that 8 percent has entered commercial operation, 89 percent has a commitment from third parties and 3 percent are at the planning level,” Andy said.

Supangkat claimed the progress of power plant construction was in line with the initial plan. He projected that the 35,000 MW program could be completed in 2022 or 2023.
