(8/31/2014)

The coal-driven steam powered electrical generation plant at Celukan Bawang (PLTU Celukan Bawang) in North Bali continues to be plagued by delays with investors now targeting electrical production to commence in December 2014 - more than a year behind schedule.

There a variety of reasons cited for the delay, including technical delays at the construction site and delays in the construction of a high voltage power lines.

Egon Wisjnu of PT General Energy Bali the first phase of active operations by PLTU Celukan Bawang in December will add 142 megawatts to the Bali power supply with phase two and three adding a further 142 megawatts to the system in January-February 2015.

The project being constructed by PT General Energy Bali (GBE) and China Hundian Engineering Corporation (CHEC) is now estimated to be 75% completed. Wisnju explained: "If we see our contract with PLN, indeed the operation of the plant has been postponed a little. We are now striving to finish the physical construction of the power plant and targeting operations to start in December 2014 and completed in phases two and three in January-February 2015."

He said the delay in constructing high-voltage power lines caused by the refusal of many local citizens to allow high-power lines to be placed over their lands at Celukan Bawang. Wisnju confirmed that the PLTU Celukan Bawang was largely ready to go with generators and fuel tanks already installed, and ready for commissioning.

Wisnju added: "I don't want to fault PLN because we understand the problem of building the high-voltage power line network is not yet completed. But this is one factor why we cannot quickly start operations. If the network of PLN is completed, the production of electrical power can commence."

In addition to the failure to complete the high-voltage power lines leading into the PLTU Celeukan Bawang, PLN is also unable at this time to provide the 20 kilovolts of power needed for the new plant in North Bali to undertake operational testing prior ro full commissioning.

GEB and PLN are currently in discussions to find a solution on the inability to supply the 20 kilovolts of power in order that operations at PLTU Celukan Bawang can commence in December.
