Local Short term disruptions in power to be expected - CEB

Short term power disruptions are to be expected islandwide over the next few days, the Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) said.

The CEB said the power disruptions will continue till the three power plants generating 900 MW of electricity at the Norochcholai power plant are fully functional.

An islandwide power outage was reported this afternoon after a malfunction occurred in three sub-stations supplying electricity to the National Grid.

Power supply has since been restored, according to a statement by State Minister of Solar Power, Wind and Hydro Power Generation Projects Development, Duminda Dissanayake.
