Built in 1923, the Ubrug Hydro Power Plant in Sukabumi was set up with an installed power of 5,94 MW on 1st unit and 2nd unit and 6,48 MW on the 3rd unit resulting in sum total of 18,36 MW. However, at present, the actual total power only generates 15,045 MW, a smaller number than its initial capacity, due to the lack of water discharge. Based on the measurement data, the load of the generator has experienced a decrease of power in normal field operation with a peak load of 9,5 MW and the lowest of 6 MW. On daily operations, only 2 generators are being operated, leaving the 3rd generator unoperated. This is due to the aging hydroelectric power plant on the location and the transition of forest functions in the upstream area, that serves as water absorption, to settlements of residents, and industrial estates. The other and the most salient cause is the waste carried by the Cicatih River coming along with the flow of water in the conduit.
