It would take four to five days to bring back the broken Phase 1 of the Noraichcholai Lakvijaya Thermal Power Plant back to operation, Power Minister Ranjith Siyambalapitiya said.

“Meanwhile Phase I and III will provide electricity to the national grid,” he said a media briefing at the Norochcholai Thermal Power plant premises today.

The power failure occurred in several areas last morning due to the breakdown of a power generator in the Phase I of the Noraichcholai Coal power station yesterday.

“The Noraichcholai has broken down about 37 times so far and the all the repairs had being done by our engineers. But this time we need Chinese engineers,” Minister Siyambalapitiya said. (Chaturanga Pradeep)

    ALWAYS BREAK DOWN. THIS IS ALSO A WHITE ELEPHANT. BETTER GIVE IT UP AND GO FOR ENERGY FROM GARBAGE

    NEXT TIME WHEN WE ORDER TRAIN ENGINES , AS PLANNED , WE WILL HAVE TO TRAIN A GROUP OF PEOPLE TO PUSH OR PULL IT IN CASE OF A BREAKDOWN.

    Break it down and build a new one from a Japanese, American or European company and let the Chinese pay for it. If they not agree cut the money from a Chines loan.

    It looks to me as if our engineers are NOT very efficient poorly trained. Only theoretical knowledge no practical training. via DM Android App
