The second stage of the Norochcholai coal power plant, which contributes 300 megawatts  to the national grid, was inoperative this evening due to a technical fault, a spokesman for the Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) said.

The first stage of the Norochcholai coal power plant had also broken down about a week ago, he said.

He said it would take a few days to repair the power plant and that CEB has to purchase electricity from the private sector to make up the loss of 600 megawatts to the national grid caused by the breakdown.

    Always breakdown. Cheap things no good. Good things no cheap. But the irony is we have paid good money for a cheap thing. Many have got their palms greased. via DM iPad app

    This power plant is a real mess. What is considered to be a brand new plant bought from China breaks down for the (n-1)th time. Even though UPFA govt boasts about giving new power connections what is the use if poor people have to pay through their noses for electricity bought from private suppliers.
