Sep 25, 1997 02:00 AM

The Indonesian government has decided to boost its electricity generating capacity by constructing more power plants to meet the increasing demand in the country, according to an official source here.
The government has initially planned to construct plants that will have the capacity to produce an additional 12,522 MW of electricity by the end of the sixth five-year development plan (1994-1999), the Indonesian National Development Information Office said in its latest publication on Indonesia's economic condition.
"Of the total, plants with the ability to generate 9,522 MW will be constructed by State Electric Company (PLN) and another 3,000 MW will be provided through private power operation," said the publication.
Indonesia previously relied on oil in the total energy mix, as reflected by the fact that oil accounted for 86 % of installed power capacity in 1984. But today, the oil share is around 40 %, and is destined to further drop to around 31 % by the sixth five year plan, the office said, adding that the share of coal in the energy mix is increasing.
