State-owned electricity company PLN expects to begin operating its first floating power plant in Sulawesi before the year-end.
PLN director Amin Subekti said on Tuesday that the first barge-mounted power plant would be located in Amurang, North Sulawesi.
“In two months we expect the [floating power] barge to arrive and then we can start operations. The power plant has a capacity of 120 megawatts [MW],” Amin said.
The first barge is part of the company’s plan to have several floating power plants to support power supply in various parts of the country.
