Jan 30, 1997 01:00 AM

Jan 23, 1997 Indonesia's electricity supply is projected to jump by 278.3 % to 37,829 MW between now and 2000, mainly with fresh contributions from the private sector, a report said. The president of the state-owned electricity company PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PLN,) Jiteng Marsudi, said private electricity supply projects currently under construction, planning or negotiation, would contribute 12,829 MW of power by 2000. PLN's current production capacity stood at 10,000 MW and the firm's expansion would churn out an additional 15,000 MW by 2000, he said. Marsudi said private electricity supply would enter the market in 1998 at the earliest. Indonesia suffered a serious shortage of electricity between 1989 and 1991 as the rapid growth of the country's industry quickly overtook the growth in electricity supply.
