Colombo (LNW): The ongoing repair of the collapsed second generator of the Norochcholai Coal Power Plant is currently underway, with an estimated two-week timeline for its full operation, the Ceylon Electricity Board disclosed.
An additional two weeks will be required to reintegrate the third generator into the national grid, a CEB spokesperson told media.
Despite the completion of maintenance work on the third generator, it encountered an operational error during the verification process.
Despite these challenges, the CEB assured that the continuous supply of electricity will remain unhindered.
However, it is noteworthy that earlier projections had suggested a three-day completion for the second generator’s repair and an imminent addition of the third generator to the national grid.
