Quick facts: The Panglima Besar Surdiman multipurpose scheme at Bawang has a 800m long, 110m tall earth-filled and rock main dam across the Serayu River. Other high-level dams stretch out on either side of the main dam to give a total crest length of more than 5km. The open-air power house is connected to the reservoir by a 570m pressure tunnel. The first study for Mrica was commissioned in 1970, but work did not get underway until Dec 1982. After 6mos, construction had to be halted until Mar 1984 for financial reasons. The main project dates were originally set back two years, but it took less time than expected to restart; at the end of the contract, only about a year was lost and the final turbine was commissioned 2mos ahead of schedule.
