SRI AMAN, July 19: Sarawak Energy Berhad (Sarawak Energy) will be carrying out urgent maintenance work on one of its two 275/33kV transformers at the Engkilili extra high voltage (EHV) substation from July 22 to 31.

Over that period, one of the two 275/33kV transformers will be de-energised.

Sarawak Energy in a statement today said its technical teams will strive to complete the repair work as soon as possible without causing supply interruption to customers.


During the shutdown, as a precautionary measure, technical teams and mobile generators will be dispatched to strategic locations on standby to speed up supply restoration if needed.

Sarawak Energy also urged those whose buildings and facilities have standby generators installed to ensure that the generators are ready to run if required.

An oil leak was found in one of the transformers.
