Power supply crisis may continue further (VIDEO)

As promised, the Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB) is receiving 10,000 metric tonnes of diesel for power generation, of which about 2,000 metric tonnes has already been delivered to the Kelanitissa Power Plant, revealed Eranga Kudahewa, Committee Member of the Electrical Engineers’ Association of the CEB, speaking to the media today (20).

Nevertheless, a power outage of about one hour could occur from 2.30 pm to 6.30 pm today (20) in the event that the fuel oil supplied to the Sapugaskanda Power Plant are sufficient only for the period of 7.30 pm – 8.30 pm today, he noted.

Kudahewa went on saying that although hydropower could be used at full capacity at night, estimations have been made that there could be a shortfall of about 50 – 60 megawatts due to a fault at the Kelanitiss Plant, which could trigger an outage of about 45 minutes at night.
