Mobile fuel dispensers to refill trishaws, generators


Minister of Power and Energy Kanchana Wijesekara said mobile fuel dispensers will be used to provide fuel to three-wheelers and generators.

Taking to his official Twitter handle, he said the dispensers will be used as a pilot project to refill three-wheelers and generators.

He also noted that the fuel truck dispensers will be used for three-wheelers, delivery bikes, and cans in large open spaces away from fuel stations.

“Hope to implement this islandwide soon,” he said.

Meanwhile, on 16 July, another ship carrying 40,000 metric tonnes of diesel arrived in Sri Lanka, and the petroleum storage terminal began unloading from the diesel ship.

However, new fuel stocks will not be distributed until the National Fuel Pass registration is completed.

Another diesel ship arrived in Sri Lanka yesterday and unloaded its cargo. Meanwhile, the first cargo of petrol is expected to arrive in Sri Lanka today (18) or tomorrow (19).

According to the Ministry of Energy, all fuel shipments have been paid for.
