Indonesia's state-owned power utility company PLN will build a number of geothermal power plants (PLTPs) in the second phase of its 10,000-MW capacity development program, a PLN executive said. PLN director for planning and strategy affairs Bambang Praptono said here on Thursday the company would cooperate with state-owned oil and gas firm PERTAMINA in the construction of geothermal power plants.

  • "We are planning to construct a number of PLTPs as part of the 10,000-MW power development program," he said adding that PLN was now exploring a number of sites for the geothermal power projects.
  • He said the funds to finance the PLTP projects would come from the company's internal resources and loans.
