Ahead of the AIS Summit in Bali, PLN is Committed to Maintaining Electricity Supply


Bali – After successfully holding the G20 Summit and the 43rd ASEAN Summit, Indonesia will again hold the Archipelagic and Island States Summit (AIS Summit) on 10-11 October 2023 in Nusa Dua Bali.

Regarding this matter, the State Electricity Company (PLN), especially the East Java and Bali Transmission Main Unit (UIT JBM), ensures that the supply of electricity in the area can continue during this grand event.

In fact, PLN UIT JBM through the Bali Transmission Implementation Unit (UPT) continues to strive to ensure that supply remains stable from the start of the event until the event is completed.

This was conveyed directly by the General Manager of PLN UIT JBM Didik Fauzi Dakhlan who revealed that his party was ready to make the AIS Summit a success.

According to him, the AIS Summit is a collaboration with the participation of dozens of island and archipelagic countries throughout the world to jointly overcome the challenges and problems faced, especially in the marine development sector.

“Indonesia has initiated the formation of the AIS Forum since 2017, and this year has the opportunity to host it, so this must be done with all out. “Fully supporting this international event, PLN is always committed to providing a reliable electricity system, so that the electricity supply during the event remains safe,” explained Didik.

“PLN has great experience in providing reliable electricity systems at previous international events which took place in Bali, the G20, the Asean Summit series in Labuan Bajo, and many more,” he added.

He explained that UPT Bali’s efforts were carried out by continuing to ensure that all transmission equipment was functioning optimally through routine maintenance since the last 3 months starting July 2023 at the electrical installation location which supplies electricity to the activity venue.

“Maintenance continues to be carried out by UPT Bali, such as cleaning and replacing corrosion insulators at the Nusa Dua 150 kV GI (main substation) which is caused by the location not far from the sea. “The work was carried out as a follow-up to the results of routine assessments,” explained Didik.

The General Manager of PLN UIT JBM also carried out maintenance at the Nusa Dua Transformer 3 Main Substation by carrying out reconditioning of SF6 Gas or Sulfur Hexaflueride Gas which has been indicated as safe recommended levels of SO2 Sulfur Dioxide.

Apart from that, his party also carries out other work and continues to carry out various other efforts related to electricity. This is necessary so that all electrical equipment can function normally.

Previously, the Indonesian government itself had received support for 156 electric cars from PT Hyundai Motor Indonesia. The Ioniq 5 and Ioniq 6 electric cars will later be used by AIS Summit delegates to support mobility.

“We thank and appreciate PT HMID for always supporting the Indonesian government in developing a clean energy car ecosystem,” said Setya.
