Indonesia state owned energy company PT Pertamina said its subsidiary PT Pertamina Geothermal Energy (PGE) installed capacity is expected to increase by 14% per annum in between 2017 to 2021, a company official said.

Director for Upstream of Pertamina Syamsu Alam was quoted by Investor Daily as saying that the installed capacity of PGE will gradually increase to 1,037 MW in 2021 from 532 MW at present.

Syamsu said in 2017, Pertamina targets to operate two new geothermal power plants, namely PLTP Ulubelu Unit 4 with capacity of 55 MW and PLTP Karaha Unit 1 with capacity of 30 MW. This will raise PGE’s geothermal energy installed capacity to 617 MW by the end of 2017.
