Norochcholai Unit 3 breaks down: Minister assures no power cuts | Sri Lanka News

Unit 3 of the Norochcholai Coal Power Plant has experienced a breakdown, Power and Energy Minister Kanchana Wijesekera said.

He said the Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) has informed him about the breakdown. However, he said there will be no power cuts due to it.

“Unit 3 was due to undergo major overhaul maintenance in April. To ensure an uninterrupted power supply, CEB owned Diesel and Fuel Oil Power plants will be used,” the minister said.

The Norochcholai Power Plant has experienced breakdowns several times on previous occasions as well.

The first generator at the power plant was shut down on December 23, last year to manage the coal stocks and for maintenance purposes.

However, it has been added to the National Grid in January this year. (Darshana Sanjeewa Balasuriya)
