Sarawak, Kuching 10 August 2012 Sarawak Energy Berhad (SEB) deeply regrets the inconvenience and disruption caused to our customers by a temporary shortage of power that may have affected some parts of Sarawak today.

SEB’s Grid System Operator, Mr Yong Ying Poh said, "Bakun unit 8 tripped at 9.56am this morning, and subsequent to that, the Bintulu Combined Cycle Plant experienced technical problem that resulted in sudden drop in electricity load from 110MW to 47MW.
