Frequent electric outages hit textile units

Frequent electricity outages, since the beginning of October has put in to a quandary, the numerous industrial units operating in the province of Greater Jakarta and which has led to a quantum increase in production costs of these companies.

The blackouts began after a transformer at the Cawang power plant exploded on September 29, straining the capacity of other power plants in the city. The biggest concern for these industries is that outages occur without any prior information.

The workers have to be paid for the time the outages take place and then have to be paid over-time once again in order to ensure that orders are dispatched on time, which is putting a heavy burden on the industries operating in the region.

Ade Sudrajat, Deputy Chairman of the Indonesian Textile Association (API) hit out by saying that, more than 100 textile and apparel manufacturers were feeling the effects of the outages, as operational costs have soared by more than 50 percent.

He added by saying that if the industry had prior information of the blackouts, they would save money that they paid to workers for sitting idle, during the blackout of electricity, while many other were depending on generators which was also proving to be expensive.
