(4/17/2010)

Radar Bali report that a power plant project being undertaken by state-owned Indonesia Power has come to a halt due to complaints from local residents in the Pesanggaran area of South Denpasar. New generators installed to help alleviated Bali's severe power shortage are said to be so noisy that local residents from Banjar Ambengan and Banjar Pesanggaran near the power plant are unable to sleep.

The vice-chairman of Commission II of the Provincial House of Representatives (DPRD-Bali), IGP Suryanta Putra. Has confirmed that Indonesia Power have only installed the first 30 MW of a total power capacity of 80 MW slated for the Pesanggaran facility.

Local residents claim the new power plant is extremely noisy, so munch so that it is preventing them form getting a good night's sleep. Villagers have, in fact, petitioned their local legislators for relief from the relentless noise pollution.

Efforts by Indonesia Power to reach an appeasement with local residents have come to no avail, as villagers says the power plant is just too noisy.

Putra points out that plans to install sophisticated and noise-reduced Swiss-made generators at the Pesanggaran plant went astray with less expensive and noisier Chinese-made generators being substituted.

The legislator has called on Indonesia Power to resolve the problem in a way that will help fill the critical electrical power deficit in Bali and allow local residents to sleep.

In a related development, DPRD-Bali has finalized its recommendations for the installation of High Tension Power Lines (Sutet) and placed that document before the governor for his signature.

The high power line plan to bring power from Java to Bali passes Gilimanuk and enters Bali, giving wide berth to protected nature areas and the sacred temple of Pura Segara Rupek.
