Bali May Experience Power Blackouts Until March 31, 2012 while the Gilimanuk Power Station undergoes Repairs.

These concerns are linked to plans to soon shut down for a month or more a gas-generated power station at Gilimanuk, west Bali. When this power station goes off line, Bali will lose 130 megawatts of power generation.

The threat of power shortfalls was confirmed by a State Power Board (PLN) spokesman for Bali, IGN Agung Mastika. He said the Gas-generated power station at the Gilimanuk port would be shut down for repair from February 11 until March 31, 2012. The repairs are routine and mandated after 24,000 hours of continuous operations.

“When the repairs are taking place, the Gimilanuk gas-generated power station cannot contribute any power to the grid. In other word, the Gilimanuk power-generating station will remove 130 megawatts of power from the systems for the entire period of repairs,” explained Mastika.

If Bali is not able to find ways to redistribute and address any power deficit during the repair period, Bali is threatened with rotating blackouts. “If Bali cannot organize its power consumption during the repair period then there will be phased blackouts,” said Mastika.

PLN is asking hotels to turn on their generator sets to reduce electrical demands while consumers are being asked to try to conserve 100 watts per household.
