(6/6/2009)

Almost the entire island of Bali experienced a black out on Sunday, May 31, 2009 due to a failure in the Java-Bali inter-connection.

Bali Post reports that all the regional capitals and municipalities of Bali when dark shortly before 6 p.m.. As a result, stores closed and cries of anguish poured forth from Internet Cafes as people lost unsaved data and files. Guests in large hotels and restaurants, many of which are equipped with back-up generator sets, were not aware of the darkness than enveloped the rest of the island.

The Public Affairs officer of the Bali Electrical Board (PLN), Agung Mustika, told the Bali Post that at 5:52 p.m. the East Java transmission line between Banyuwangi and Situbondo failed causing an immediate overload on the Banyuwangi-Jember inter-island connection.

At the time of system breakdown Bali was consuming a total 410 megawatts. Efforts to absorb this power loading by the Gilimanuk power station (130 MW), Pesanggaran (110 MW) and Pemaron (80MW) proved insufficient to meet all the island's power requirements. By 6:18 p.m. the Jawa-Bali interconnection system began to gradually redress the power shortfalls but fell victim to an additional failure of the Banyuwangi-Jember transmission line that occurred at 7:59 p.m.. Efforts by PLN continued with power being gradually restored to all areas of the island by approximately 9 p.m..
