More power plants in Indonesia likely to be shut due to fuel shortage

    JAKARTA, June 21 (Xinhuanet) -- A 750-megawatt power plant in Grati, Pasuruan, East Java Province of Indonesia, stopped operation on Monday as it ran out of fuel stock, the Antara news agency reported on Tuesday.

    As a result the Java-Bali interconnection will have a deficit of 658 MW in power supply and the stated-owned electricity company PLN will be forced to reduce power supply proportionally to various areas in Java and Bali island, including Jakarta.

    Those areas will have their turn of blackout at peak load, PLN said.

    Meanwhile, another gas and steam powered power plant in Tambak Lorok in Semarang, in Central Java province is also facing shortage of fuel supply and may have to stop operation unless the government could cope with the fuel shortage.

    The 1,000 MW power plant has fuel enough only until Wednesday.

    Earlier Energy and Mineral Resources Minister Purnomo Yusgiantgoroi said the government would overcome the problem over fuel shortage. Enditem
