The establishment of Electricity Authority of Brunei Darussalam can strengthen the provision of a safe and reliable electrical supply. According to Yang Berhormat Dato Seri Setia Dr Awang Haji Mat Suny, in order to preserve the public’s well-being, the Department of Electrical Services will continue to be active in enhancing reliability and efficiency of generating electric supplies and deliveries. In 2018, the Department of Electrical Services has reduced electric supply disruption of more than one hour by 8.5 per cent. While sharing the achievement, the Minister of Energy, Manpower and Industry also underlined the Ministry’s target.
This year’s target is to ensure that the number of power supply disruption of more than one hour will not exceed 52 and the period of disruption is not more than 30 minutes. To provide a more sustainable power supply system, preventive maintenance work will continue to be carried out. Measures pertaining to a safe and reliable power supply provision are also enhanced with the establishment of Electricity Authority of Brunei Darussalam to enforce best practices related to generating, installing and the usage of power supply.
