The second generator of the Norochcholai Coal Power Plant will be shut down for maintenance from tonight. Co-Secretary of the Ceylon Electricity Engineers Union Eranga Kudahewa said the maintenance will be completed in 75 days from today. Commenting on the impact the maintenance will have on power disruptions, Kudahewa said the maintenance is overdue over two years adding it was postponed due to travel restrictions on the manufacturer due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
However, Minister of Power and Energy Kanchana Wijesekera believes that shutting down a single generator of the Norochcholai Coal Power Plant will not increase the duration of power cuts.
