TIMEFRAME expected from 11/12/2019, 12:00 AM until 12/31/2019, 11:59 PM (Asia/Jakarta). COUNTRY/REGION Lombok

Event

Indonesia’s state-owned power company, PLN, is implementing rolling blackouts on Lombok Island as of Tuesday, November 12. According to PLN, the policy was put in place due to a decrease in production capacity and an increase in peak loads. The drop in capacity has reportedly been caused by maintenance works and the prolonged dry season, which is affecting PLN micro-hydro plants in North and East Lombok. Rolling blackouts are expected to continue through the month of December.

Associated transportation, business, and power disruptions are anticipated over the coming weeks

Advice

Individuals traveling to Lombok are advised to monitor developments to the situation, to be cautious when driving or crossing streets if traffic signals are not functioning, adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities, and keep battery-operated devices fully charged whenever possible.
