Bali Daily (The Jakarta Post) reports yet another power outage has occured at Bali’s newly renovated Ngurah Rai Airport.

The latest in a series of power outages took place on Tuesday, December 10, 2013, lasting almost thirty-minutes from 8:47 p.m.. According to the Airport’s communication and legal section head, Alfansyah, service to the public continued largely unabated during the power interruption.

Promising another outage will not occur; Alfansyah said any future blackout would be resolved in minutes via a back up system of generators that is now fully operational.

Explaining the failure to quickly restore power during the Tuesday outage, Alfansyah said: “The one that happened last night was network damage, not due to a shortage of supply. We are always prepared with generators as backup. But last night was different.”

The latest blackout occurred during a peak traffic period at the airport. While battery powered light provided minimum levels of lighting, while air conditioning ceased to operate during the half-hour period.

The State Power Board (PT PLN) was quick to issue a statement that the lack of power was not due to any interruption in power supply, but due to internal problems at the airport. PT PLN did, however, dispatch a team of experts to the airport to help resident engineers identify and correct the problem.

PT PLN has established a special sub-station serving Bali’s Airport, with built-in redundancy of supplies from the Pesanggaran and Pemecutan substations.
