Sarawak Energy Remains Vigilant To Ensure Reliable Power Supply During Election Period

KUCHING, 7TH MAY 2018, MONDAY: Sarawak Energy is mobilising all resources and continuing to be on high alert to ensure continued reliability of supply during the 14th General Election.

The power utility is intensifying monitoring of its feeders, with switching and standby personnel stationed at strategic points on the supply network system and critical facilities throughout the state. Standby technical teams are ready for swift deployment to expedite supply restoration in case of a supply interruption.

A power interruption at the Skuau Resettlement Scheme, Selangau yesterday was restored after following notification to the Sarawak Energy customer careline at about 6.30pm. A technical team immediately patrolled the lines and discovered there were low tension wires sparking due to a sagging conductor line and proceeded with repair works, with power restored within an hour. The interruption affected some parts of the town area including the clinic, a kindergarten, community hall, some residential homes and longhouses Rh Tan Ak Nari, Rh Joseph Serang and Rh. Sam ak Mawan.
