Unit 2 of the Norochcholai Coal Power Plant has experienced a breakdown following a steam leak. Lakvijaya Plant Manager Indrasiri Gallage said that it would take around four days to cool down. “After four days, we will repair it and it can be completed within two days.’’

When asked if it would affect the total power generation, Gallage said that there would be no impact as it could be recovered from the Kerawalapitiya Plant and other power plants under the purview of the Ceylon Electricity Board.

However, energy experts claim that due to this breakdown a minimum of one week's outage could be expected.
They also observe that at least one of the plants has always had a breakdown since January and that all three plants worked only in March. (Kamanthi Wickramasinghe)

    Really bad time for the buds. From my experience, this plant is maintained by Chinese. We pay then handsomely. One the plant cools down, it will take weeks to being it back online. The reason is that the CEB will have to wait for Chinese engineers to visit Sri Lanka for the repair. This is same same for telecom operators which have government investment. The bottom line is, the local engineer get paid handsomely and do nothing. Most gaze at the compute display on the table the whole day.

    Do they carry out periodical maintenance or wait till its breakdown to react? Periodical maintenance does not bring profit to individuals but reactive maintenance does.

    They never will learn that the Chinese only deliver scrub and rubbish. Thy should stop to pay the Chinese with US Dollars but with rubbish money (LKR)
