State electricity company PT Perusahaan Listrik Negara (PLN) will supply one million volt ampere (VA) capacity of power bank to aid the collective central vaccination to be held in Senayan Tennis Court in Jakarta.
“The electricity will be temporarily supplied by using the PLN’s power bank, so it will not generate either noise or air pollution,” the PLN General Manager at the Jakarta’s Distribution Main Unit Doddy Benyamin Pangaribuan stated on official press release here on Sunday.
The supporting equipments and the COVID-19 vaccine storage require sufficient and reliably electricity, he noted.
Therefore, PLN will distribute extra supply by using the 30.000 volt ampere of Uninterruptible Power Supply (UPS) for vaccine storage.
Electricity supply for vaccination consists of three layers of supporting supply streamed by the 150 kilo volt of high voltage station and 20 kilo volt of distribution station, Pangaribuan revealed.
If the main supply is interrupted, the electricity stream will be switched to the supporting supply that has same quality as the main supply, he added.
“We provide special reliability and layered supply which are not only from the same system, but also another system. So, if blockage occurs, the electricity will be backed up by the supporting system,” Pangaribuan remarked.
Aside from supplying electricity for vaccination in Senayan, PLN also supplies the electricity for vaccination in the Health Ministry.
In addition, the company has expressed readiness to maintain the reliable electricity supply at the referral COVID-19 hospitals as well as places for isolated patients, such as hotels andWisma Atlet COVID-19 Hospital of Kemayoran.
