Kelanitissa unable to get back repaired machines – Minister
By Ruwantha Nithulgaspitiya
Minister of Power Dullas Alahapperuma said, though the malfunctioning machines of the Kelanitissa Power Station were sent to India for repairs, they were unable to bring back the repaired machines due to the worsening COVID-19 situation in India.
He has instructed the Ceylon Electricity Board officers to add a further 165 megawatts to the National Grid, after activating the inactive parts of the National Grid which were inactive since October last year.
Alahapperuma had given these instructions following an inspection tour to the Kelanitissa Power Station recently.
