The Cabinet gave approval to construct the proposed 500 MW capacity Coal Power Plant at Sampoor in Tricomalee with Indian assistance on a proposal made by Economic Development Minister Basil Rajapaksa.

Due to the increased demand for electricity in the Eastern Province, it has been decided to establish a Coal Based Power Plant of 2x250MW capacity at Sampoor in the Trincomalee District at a total investment of around US$500 million.

The partners of this US$500 million joint venture are the CEB and the National Thermal Power Corporation Ltd. of India, Minister Rambukwella said. (Sandun A. Jayasekera)

    Still can't get Noracholai running continuously and we go for another coal plant? Whats the catch?

    what happen to the Noracholai coal power plant?
    Always breakdown.

    zorro Thursday, 19 January 2012 03:54 PM

    of course we have power shortage; first get Norocholai plant running then go to the next project!

    Why an outdated coal power plant which may end up being run on oil like the one in Noracholai. One must settle down for a wind farm. Sampoor may not be the location for such a modern plant.

    In Chavalakade in the Eastern Province the rice mill had a power plant to supply the residences attached to the rice mill -more than 300 and it was run by burning paddy husk generating steam and using that steam to boil the paddy for parboiled rice and also produce the electricity . This technology may be old but it uses waste material abundantly available in Paddy Growing areas we must think in terms of power generation with local inputs instead of Coal or worse still fuel oil which has to be imported.

    Impossible, we are puppets to obligations on help we received during the war. Now we have to flush patriotism down the commode and follow the dictates of our masters India and China.
