The malfunctioned generator at the Norochcholai Power Plant is being repaired, said Power Minister Gamini Lokuge. Speaking to media, the Minister promised that the generator will be restored by January 25, making the uninterrupted power supply possible.
The Minister also stated that he believes that the power supply will not be interrupted after the 25th, despite the ongoing fuel crisis.
The supply of power had been suspended for nearly two hours yesterday, in the event there is a crisis leading to the provision of fuel oil for power generation triggered by the problematic situation between the Ceylon Petroleum Corporation (CPC) and the Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB).
The Subject Minister added that there will be further power outages until January 25, but every effort will be put to provide an uninterrupted power supply.
