Today’s (27) power cut will have to be extended up to three hours, due to the shutting down of the Unit 03 at the Norochcholai Coal Power Plant, said Chairman of the Public Utilities Commission of Sri Lanka (PUCSL) Janaka Ratnayake.

The PUCSL earlier today warned that the power cuts may have to be extended due to the failure at the Plant, however, Energy Minister Kanchana Wijesekara said in a tweet that the Commission has approved the Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) to purchase power from private power plants to maintain power generation without having to extend power cuts from tomorrow.

He added that the Ceylon Petroleum Corporation (CEYPETCO) will provide the necessary diesel, naptha and furnace oil for the generation of power.

The restoration of the Unit 03, which was shut down due to a steam leak, at the Norochcholai Power Plant may require about 03 to 05 days, he added.
