Bisnis Indonesia confirms that the tender process for the “Bali Crossing” – believed to be, when completed, the world’s tallest electrical pylon construction standing 376-meters high at the Banyuwangi-Gilimanuk straits between Java and Bali.
While not disclosing the name of the company who won the tender process, the Minister for State-Owned Enterprises, Dahlan Iskan, confirmed construction of the “Bali Crossing” lines will commence in early 2012.
When completed, the extremely high power lines will have the ability to carry 3,000 megawatts of power to an island whose current peak usage level is 600 megawatts. The overcapacity is seen as sufficient to supply Bali’s power needs for 25 years to come, with power consumption growing at a rate of 10-11% per year on the island.
