(4/7/2013)

The Jakarta Post reports the North Bali legislators in Buleleng have uncovered a number of irregularities in the building and operation of the Celukan Bawang coal-fired electrical generation plant (PLTU).

Lawmakers visiting the plant encountered a large amount of heavy equipment originating from China but failing to display the required safety certificates. Mangku Budiasa, the chairman of Commission B of the Buleleng House of Representatives (DPRD-Buleleng) cited the lack of safety certification and the illegal use of subsidized fuel in running the plant.

Representing the management of the PLTU, Igon Wisnu, apologized, saying that he was unable to provide all the required documentation during the short visit by legislators. “We will try to process and to provide any required documents,” Wisnu promised.

The power plant has been the focus of many complaints including the failure to properly document its foreign workers, irregularities in land acquisitions, minimal employment of people from surrounding communities and manipulation of the project’s approved environmental impact plan.

The PLTU is being built and jointly operated by PT General Energy Bali (GEB) and China Huadian Engineering Corporation.


Reportedly more than half of the land being used by the PLTU is occupied illegally, with developers having failed to make final payment for land acquisition.
