Fuel levels in many power plants are seriously low!

According to the Public Utilities Commission, the fuel stocks of many power plants that generate electricity using diesel and fuel oil have gone down to a sufficient level for only a few days.

According to a note issued by the said commission yesterday (01), the stocks of fuel owned by the Sojits plant and the Matara Ace plant were already exhausted by yesterday.

Also, many other power plants are going to run out of fuel today and only Sapugaskanda A, Sapugaskanda B and Barge have enough fuel for another three days.

The Norochchole coal-fired power plant has enough coal stocks till next October, but as one of the three generators of the plant has been stopped for essential maintenance, the capacity is down to 540 MW.

Accordingly, sources in the field said that only if the government is able to get a stock of diesel from IOC today, it will be able to avoid a major power cut.
