Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) Chairman W. Wickramasinghe said the repair work at the Norochcholai Power Plant would be completed on Monday. He said a decision would also be taken at that time whether to continue with the power cuts.

The cause of the breakdown had been detected and the spare parts needed for repairs are available in Sri Lanka. This will hasten the repair work as scheduled, the Chinese engineers said.

Chinese company responsible for the power plant deniedall allegations. (ISA)

    Why the need to consider continuing the power once the repairs are completed? He should stop thinking he's doing the public a favour by supplying uninterrupted electricity and remember it's his duty to do so.

    How come the Chinese Engineers are able to identify and repair within a week using spare parts available locally while our engineers including the Minister who is also an engineer are unable to do anything and remain plain dumb?

    Thanks! Hope it will not breakdown again within next few days.

    Can we try and focus more on education, health, energy and economy pls? It is now or never. Maybe too late very soon. I hope i am wrong and my fears are unfounded though

    Breakdowns do happen, however Mr. Minister please note that proper solutions need to be found in providing constant and regular supply of electricity, people are tired of listening to lame excuses. If something’s broken, well fix it and get on with it! If demand is up, you people need to plan and put more power stations up in that case, and please run them efficiently not until they breakdown. As a contingency, having a 150 ~ 250 MW backup plant that could feed the national grid will not hurt the economy as much as power cuts do, besides it allows proper maintenance of the other plants, when plants are rotated. Just do the math, I’m sure you’ll see it’s viable.
