WE On line, Jakarta –
PT PLN (Persero) through the Sulawesi Mum or dad Enhancement Unit (UIP) accelerated the construction of the 150 Kilovolt (kV) Kendari–Andoolo–Kasipute Substantial Voltage Air Line (SUTT). This electric power infrastructure challenge was developed to fortify the electrical energy source in Southeast Sulawesi (Sultra), particularly to meet up with the demands of the smelter field.
The construction of this transmission network is specific to be operational in the very first semester of 2021. This SUTT connects Kendari Metropolis, South Konawe Regency and Bombana Regency.

The building of the 150 kV Kendari–Andoolo–Kasipute SUTT has a 264-kilometer circuit (kms) extend of cable with a complete of 410 towers and connects 3 substations (GI). GI 150 kV Kendari which is previously in operation, GI 150 kV Andoolo and GI 150 kV Kasipute which are presently underneath design. There is an additional transformer capability at the substation which is currently beneath design by 60 Mega Volt Ampere (MVA).
Anis explained that currently the electrical power supply in Bombana Regency is still employing Isolated PLTD. Meanwhile, Andolo District is connected to the South Sulawesi technique applying a 20 kV medium voltage community (JTM).
“However, the extensive distance from the load heart exceeds 100 km, leading to the voltage to drop and the community quality to be fewer than ideal,” he described.
Later on, with the development of the 150kV Kendari–Andoolo–Kasipute SUTT, it will enhance the top quality of service to prospects in Southeast Sulawesi Province, especially Bombana Regency and South Konawe Regency.
The prospective of substantial shoppers in the Southeast Sulawesi Province reaches 3,223 MVA or 45% of the total likely prospects on Sulawesi Island which reaches 7,184 MVA.
