Norochcholai down again


The Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) yesterday stated, technical breakdown had occurred at a 270MW power plant at the Norochcholai Coal Power Plant.

Minister of Power and Energy Kanchana Wijesekera said, the CEB has commenced repair work and the plant will be reconnected to the National Grid within five days.

Minister Wijesekera added, that power cuts will be managed without any further extensions by using thermal and hydropower plants to generate power.
