    LAWAS: The demand for electricity in this district is set to rise with the development of an industrial zone and completion of several major infrastructural projects.

    Power supplier Sarawak Energy through Sesco has already taken steps to meet future power needs, said its local engineer, Effendi Saiful Abdullah, during the company’s staff appreciation cum thanksgiving gathering at Lawas Indoor Stadium on New Year’s Day.

    A 35MW generator would be added to the present power plant to boosts its capacity.

    The company is also looking forward to the completion of Lawas hydro-electric project by 2014.

    Effendi said power generation in isolation from the state grid was easily affected by the environment and blackouts were difficult to prevent.

    “We need the local people to get rid of overhanging tree branches on the distribution cables passing through their respective areas,” he said.

    The company is also expanding its power distribution system to the proposed water treatment plant in Trusan, Mengkalab Immigration Check point and new SMK Trusan.

    The rural electrification drive shall also continue into the interior including Long Tengoa which was previously accessible only by river transportation from Trusan bazaar.

    For their commitment to their jobs, Effendi thanked the staff of Sesco and Sarawak Energy.

    He said it was what had helped them in tackling challenges in the past year.

    He also thanked the Minister of Public Utilities cum Second Minister of Planning and Resource Management Dato Sri Awang Tengah Ali Hassan for his support and leadership in the district.
