No power cuts today as CBSL released dollars: Lokuge

Power Minister Gamini Lokuge revealed that the one-hour power cut set for today (24) will not be taking place as the Central Bank of Sri Lanka (CBSL) has agreed to pay for two ships carrying diesel and petrol.

The CBSL has agreed to release US$ 53 million for the settlements following a discussion held with the President today.

Accordingly, two ships carrying 37,500 metric tonnes of diesel and 35,000 metric tonnes of petrol are due to be paid off by this evening.

Energy Minister Udaya Gammanpila also stated that the power cuts set on future course could be cancelled in order to provide a continuous supply of power by providing the required fuel to the Ceylon Electricity Board (CEB).
